Soldier Box: Why I Won't Return to the War on Terror

by Joe Glenton
£12.99   hardback  Verso Books (2013)

Soldier Box: Why I Won A brave, moving account of a soldier who refused to return to Afghanistan.
 
When the War on Terror began, Joe Glenton signed up to serve his nation. He passed through basic training and deployed to Afghanistan in 2006. What he saw overseas left him disillusioned, and he returned manifesting symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. Refusing a second tour, he went AWOL and left the country, but returned voluntarily to fight his case, with the military accusing him of desertion. Despite being threatened with years in prison, he continued to speak out and won the support of many of his fellow soldiers.
 
Unsparingly honest and powerfully written, Glentonís account of his personal war against an unjust occupation is the true story of an ordinary soldier standing up for his convictions, refusing to take part in a pointless conflict, and taking on the military establishment.
