1001 Nights In Iraq
1001 Nights In Iraq, Shant Kenderian
A gift from my mother-in-law for my birthday, 1001 Nights In Iraq is quite a harrowing story of an Iraq-born Armenian American caught in Iraq during the Iran-Iraq War and Desert Storm, forced by Saddam to fight in the Iraqi army against his wishes. A matter-of-fact account of Shant’s ordeal in the army, the book walks through his captivity by Americans during Desert Storm and the US military personnel he befriended during his time as a POW. An insightful journey through the recent Middle Eastern conflicts from a novel view point.
