|recommend book⇒The Deserter’s Tale: The Story of an Ordinary Soldier Who Walked Away from the War in Iraq|
|by||Joshua Key and Lawrence Hill||978-0-8021-4345-7||paperback|
|Key, a young husband and father from a conservative background, enlisted in the Army in 2002 to get training as a welder and lift his family out of poverty. A year later, Key was sent to Ramadi in Iraq where he found himself participating in a war that was not the campaign against terrorists and evildoers he had expected. He saw Iraqi civilians beaten, shot and killed for little or no provocation. Nearly ever other night, he participated in raids on homes that found only terrified families and no evidence of terrorist activity. He tells of American soldiers playing soccer with a decapitated Iraqi’s head. On leave, Key knew he could not return so he took his family underground, finally seeking asylum in Canada. As of 2007 he was fighting extradition from Canada.|
