Summary
"A stringer for The Washington Post and The New York Times, Ayub Nuri's work on the front lines in Iraq has been portrayed in best-selling books by award winning journalists. Now he tells his own story and that of his people. He writes of growing up during the Iran-Iraq War, of Saddam Hussein's chemical attack killing 30 family members, of civil war, of living in refugee camps, and of years of starvation that followed the UN's sanctions. The story begins with the historic betrayal by the French and British that deprived the Kurds of a country of their own. Nuri recounts living through the 2003 American invasion and the collapse of Hussein's totalitarian rule, and how, for a brief period, he felt optimism for the future. Then came bloody sectarian violence, and recently, the harrowing ascent of ISIS, which Nuri reported from Mosul."--
