Description - The Road From Ar-ramadi by Camilo Mejia

Staff Sergeant Camilo Mejia became the new face of the anti-war movement in 2004 when he applied for discharge from the army as a conscientious objector. Now released after serving nearly nine months in prison, Mejia tells his own story in his own words. Most powerful are his firsthand experiences of prison abuse, senseless patrols inviting insurgent attacks, discord among demoralised comrades and the constant brutalisation of Iraqis by paranoid, trigger-happy GIs.' - Publisher's Weekly'
