Abstract:

Shant Kenderian's visit to Baghdad in 1980, at age seventeen, was supposed to be a short one--just enough time to make peace with his estranged father before returning home to the United States. But then Saddam Hussein invaded Iran and sealed off Iraq's borders to every man of military age--including Shant. Suddenly forced onto the front lines, his two-week visit turned into a ten-year nightmare. Yet throughout this whole ordeal, Shant never lost his respect for people, his faith in God, or his sense of humor. This book presents a human story with unique insight into a country and culture that we only get a hint of in the headlines.--From publisher description.
