Long Shot

Long Shot

In September 2014, Azad Cudi became one of seventeen snipers deployed when ISIS, trying to shatter the Kurds in a decisive battle, besieged the northern city of Kobani. In LONG SHOT, he tells the inside story of how a group of activists and idealists withstood a ferocious assault and, street by street, house by house, took back their land in a victory that was to prove the turning point in the war against ISIS. By turns devastating, inspiring and lyrical, this is a unique account of modern war and of the incalculable price of victory as a few thousand men and women achieved the impossible and kept their dream of freedom alive.

John le Carré
Vivid

Fergal Hallahan, IRISH NEWS
Striking and memorable

A propulsive memoir that captures the grim reality of small-scale conflict and reveals the fragmented politics of the Middle East today
