Detained: Emails and Musings From a Spiritual Journey Through Abu Ghraib, Kandahar, and Other Garden Spots
Brian Rees, author
Over the course of five deployments to the Middle East since 9/11, Colonel (retired) Brian Rees documented his daily life at Abu Ghraib, Bagram, Kandahar, Camp Bucca and elsewhere, by writing emails to his friends and family. This book shares a candid look into America’s wars. Humorous and insightful, you hear what it is like to be a doctor to Taliban and al-Qaeda insurgents, to serve at Saddam Hussein’s trial, to work with a mostly Muslim population in an occupied country, as well as some of the ethical dilemmas faced by a physician on the battlefield. Dr. Rees unflinchingly addresses some of the defining questions of this generation: how and why have Americans been engaged in wars for a decade and a half? Will religion and spirituality help or hinder our efforts to conclude our ongoing wars on favorable terms? Dr. Rees reflects on a number of risks we face as a family of nations, how we can avoid a “clash of civilizations,” and how we must heal casualties at home and abroad.
