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

A Hill-Times Book of the Year

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.”

With a foreword by Major-General (Ret’d) Lewis MacKenzie and a preface by Michael Friscolanti.

Editorial Reviews

“[Semrau’s] words are the echoes of thousands of Canadian soldiers who have gone before from the Boer War to the War on Terror and all of the frustrations, danger and illogic that is a war zone.”
