Book #14: Code Name: Johnny Walker: The Extraordinary Story of the Iraqi Who Risked Everything to Fight with the U.S. Navy SEALs, Johnny Walker & Jim DeFelice
Much has been written about Iraq by U.S. service men/women. This book is the memoir of an Iraqi man who worked as an interpreter for the U.S. Navy SEALs in Iraq between 2003 and 2009. He describes growing up in Iraq, the rich history of the middle east, ethnic and religious tensions and ultimately an Iraqi’s perspective on the war. It is a fascinating story of a man and his family’s quest to live and work in war-torn Iraq and ultimately for the freedom he found in the United States.
