Summary
Joshua Key, a young husband and father from a conservative background in Oklahoma, enlisted in the United States Army in 2002, to get training as a welder and lift his family out of poverty. He believed he would not be deployed unless "World War III" broke out. A year later, President George W. Bush invaded Iraq. In spring 2003, Key was sent to Ramadi as part of the 43rd Combat Engineer Company of the Second Squadron, Third Armored Cavalry. The Deserter's Tale details life as part of the occupying force-it is not an expose of one terrible atrocity, but an account of an experience where human rights abuses and impunity for committing them were routine. It is the story of a conservative-minded family man and patriot from Oklahoma, who went into the war believing unquestioningly in his government's commitment to integrity and justice, and how what he saw in Iraq transformed him into someone who could no longer serve his country
