None of Us Were Like This Before American Soldiers and Torture (Hardcover)
|Author: Joshua E. S. Phillips|
|Based on firsthand reporting from Iraq as well as interviews with soldiers and their families, this work illustrates that the damaging legacy of torture is not only borne by the detainees, but also by American soldiers and the country to which they''ve returned.|
From the Publisher:
Recounts the journey of a U.S. tank battalion--trained for conventional combat--as its focus switches to guerilla warfare and prisoner detention, showing how a group of ordinary soldiers, ill-trained for their new responsibilities, descended into the degradations of abuse.
