I spent all day yesterday reading The Deserter's Tale - The Story of an Ordinary Soldier Who Walked Away from the War in Iraq by Joshua Key with Lawrence Hill. It usually takes me weeks, sometimes months, to read a book, but I simply could not put this one down until I finished it.
The Deserter's Tale is one of the most riveting - and important - books you will ever read. I only wish it could be required reading for every adult American, especially any who still think there's a legitimate reason for the US to occupy Iraq.
The book should certainly be required reading for every Canadian jurist, every member of the Immigration and Refugee Board, and every Member of Parliament who may be asked to decide whether or not to Let Them Stay.
You can read the prologue here.
Buy it, read it, spread the word.
