Northern Disclosure (Hardcover): Toby James Nunn Northern Disclosure (Hardcover)
Toby James Nunn
R564 Discovery Miles 5 640 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

A new memoir by Toby James Nunn, reveals personal stories of the faces behind the military uniforms as young men learn about the Army and about themselves during combat in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Nunn presents both his own experience as an infantry squad leader and the experiences of the soldiers under his command. Northern Disclosure is about their exploits, but it is also a coming of age story. Soldiers mature quickly in a war zone, and it is not uncommon that an inner struggle ensues, pitting their natural humanity against an aggressiveness programmed by years of training. Nunn follows his unit's progress as their training moves from the U.S. to the desert sands of Kuwait before heading into Iraq for combat. Nunn's unit was the first to train and fight as a Stryker Brigade Combat Team. Northern Disclosure rides shotgun as Nunn and his soldiers take the Stryker vehicle into combat scenarios in Iraq. Readers will also be given a ground level perspective of the middle stages of the effort to reestablish the Iraqi nation. Nunn was one of the first leaders to face the challenge of training and establishing local security forces in Iraq while dealing with the cultural differences between his soldiers and the Iraqis they trained and fought with. Northern Disclosure is a military and human interest story that will appeal to readers who are interested in a true insider's account of the war in Iraq.
