The Taliban Don't Wave

by Rob Semrau

HarperCollins Publishers Ltd | July 8, 2013 | Trade Paperback

The Taliban Don't Wave is rated 1 out of 5 by 1.

Foreword by Major-General (Ret''d) Lewis MacKenzie
Preface by Michael Friscolanti

The national bestseller about one soldier''s battle against the Taliban and for his own future

Captain Robert Semrau''s military trial made international headlines-a Canadian soldier serving in Afghanistan arrested for allegedly killing a grievously wounded Taliban soldier in the field. For more than two years, Semrau faced an uncertain future that hinged on an incident blurred by the fog of war.

In The Taliban Don''t Wave, Semrau has written an emotionally draining and mind-snapping first-hand account not of his alleged crime, but of war on the ground in Afghanistan. Raw and explosive, this is a book about soldiers who live, fight and die in a moonscape of a country where it is always hard to tell friend from enemy. In the national bestseller The Taliban Don''t Wave, Robert Semrau takes you with him on a journey you may not be ready for, into the sheer hell that is "The Stan."

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly Written This book is poorly written and very hard to work through.  It is mostly a self-serving re-telling of war stories and draws no significant deductions or lessons from time spent in Afghanistan.  There are many better books out there about Canadian tour experiences in that country.

Editorial Reviews

"Semrau''s book stands out for its gritty, pull-no-punches portrayal of what it felt like to be on the ground in a place where death and destruction lurked around every corner." -CALGARY HERALD

"An unvarnished view." -THE GLOBE AND MAIL

"I couldn''t put it down. . . . Former officer Semrau is blunt and doesn''t hold back. I wish more [soldiers] would come forward with their stories so that Canadians can get a full picture of what we did in Afghanistan." -REX MURPHY
