You will never read a more personal, moving, direct, compassionate account of war in the Middle East.

Australian/Israeli soldier, 22 year-old kibbutznik Danny Morris, is wounded in battle during the savage 2006 campaign against the entrenched Hezbollah.

What starts for a platoon of best friends as a one-day cross-border skirmish escalates for Morris into a fight for his country, his life, and ultimately his battle with himself to make sense of the horror he and his friends survived when so many others did not.

Morris sets down one soldier’s actions, thoughts, feelings, fears and fearlessness. Simple. Forthright. And with searing honesty, no heroics, no hyperbole. Just an Israeli kid’s eternity: a few days war in Lebanon.
