In February 2015 Tim Locks headed to Iraq to fight ISIS. After watching images of the Yazidi people being slaughtered by ISIS, he couldn't sit back and do nothing. Having worked as a prison officer and a bouncer, he knew how to handle himself - and had a huge protective streak. He sold his house to raise money, put himself through arms training, bought his equipment on ebay, and made his way to the front. Now, in this shockingly honest account of one man's war, he reveals what it is like to fight alongside the Kurds as well as other foreign volunteers, coming under mortar and small-arms fire, and witnessing the horrific atrocities committed by ISIS. He also describes how wifi on the front line allows them to communicate, how today's soldiers are obsessed with selfies, and the Kurds are so used to this way of life they stop mid firefight to have a cup of chai and play Candy Crush while manning the mortars. As part of a team of British and American ex-military, Tim is currently reclaiming villages forcibly occupied by ISIS. There's a price on head, and he carries one bullet to kill himself in case of capture, but he's not giving up until the war is won.
