Summary
"Johnny Walker" is the code name for an Iraqi translator who worked with American Special Forces during the post-9/11 war in Iraq, and who is now an American citizen. He maintains his code name to protect his relatives who remain in Iraq. In this riveting, thought-provoking memoir, "Walker" explains what motivated him to work with Americans and what it meant to be a civilian translator with Navy SEALs -- he had to be as ready for combat as they were. Eventually, he had to leave Iraq because assassins were targeting him. Code Name Johnny Walker offers an engaging, candid, and eye-opening view of the war and of one man's personal commitment to his own and his adopted country. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
