General Note:
Includes index.
Summary, etc.:
Recounts the story of Shaker Jeffrey, a young Yazidi interpreter for the US military in Iraq, and what happened after ISIS sentenced the Yazidi people to extermination. The Yazidis fled to Mount Shingal, where they had no food and no water. Shaker went behind enemy lines, relaying their precise locations to CENTCOM in Washington and even infiltrating their ranks to rescue the taken; but he would come to risk everything in the search for his beloved. Soon, he established a cross-border, underground rescue network that would save the lives of thousands of civilians, all while feeding intelligence to the US military--and landing him at the top of ISIS's execution list.
