Having fought in Iraq, Camilo Mejia became convinced of the immorality and illegality of the war and, upon being called back to service, became the first US soldier to publicly refuse to fight and has since become a leading figure with the Iraq Veterans Against the War movement. In this memoir he recounts his experiences in Iraq, his decision not to return, and his trial and conviction for desertion by a military court.
