Summary
In May of 2005, the U.S. government finally acknowledged that the invasion of Iraq had spawned an insurgency. Lt. Col. Bill Edmonds was in the first group of "official" military advisors. He arrived in Mosul in the wake of Abu Ghraib,and his job was to advise an Iraqi intelligence officer—to assist and temper his interrogations—but not give orders. In a makeshift basement prison, over countless nights and predawn hours, Edmonds came to empathize with Iraqi rules: do what’s necessary, do what works. Yet the longer he submerged himself in the worst of humanity, the more conflicted and disillusioned he became, slowly losing faith in everything and everyone. In the end, he lost himself. He returned home with no visible wounds, but on the inside he was different. Edmonds provides a disturbing and thought-provoking account of the morally ambiguous choices faced when living with and fighting within a foreign religion and culture, as well as the resulting psychological and spiritual impacts on a soldier
