Contrary to what some have concluded, the last book by an American in Iraq has not been published yet. Gimme Shelter: Fear, Healing and Disaster in Iraq is not written by a soldier who was there to kill; it is offered by a healer who was there to save lives. This journal is a compelling and insightful personal account of the Iraq War. It is a sardonic confirmation of bureaucratic incompetence and corporate greed--revealed through the observations of a man who clearly loves his country and takes pride in his job. Gimme Shelter is a compelling read from start to finish. It leaves readers feeling satisfied that they have finally discovered an honest, fair-minded, and comprehensive account of life on the ground in Iraq. This is a book that will remain relevant long after our country's inevitable departure from this troubled region. Gimme Shelter reads like fiction, using a terse, fragmented style to emphasize a terrifying reality. Intensely readable, the narrative sprints from the light to the tragic, the mundane to the maddening, as it bears its readers toward a deeper understanding of the true nature of Operation Iraqi Freedom and the Iraqi Reconstruction Project. "American soldiers in battle don't fight for what some President says on T.V., they don't fight for mom, apple pie, the American flag, they fight for one another." Lt. Gen. Hal Moore About the author: Gerard Seling was employed as a paramedic, assigned to treat employees of some of the largest oil and electricity reconstruction projects in Iraq. Once a true believer the Iraq War, Seling emerged questioning U.S. economic motives as they related to the war and rebuilding of the country.
