About the Book

What happens when a career Marine officer stops believing in the doctrine of the Corps and the official pretexts for war? In 2006, Winston Tierney deployed to Iraq’s Anbar Province with the Fourth Reconnaissance Battalion, excited and proud to serve his country in the fight against international terrorism. Returning home in 2015, depleted by hatred, mendacity, alcohol abuse and PTSD, he felt he had “seen behind the curtain”—and didn’t like what he saw. His hard-hitting memoir depicts the brutal realities of the conflict in Iraq at street level, while giving a clear-eyed treatise on the immorality of war and the catastrophe of America’s failures in the Middle East.
