Honor Bound: Inside the Guantanamo Trialsby Kyndra Miller Rotunda
Pub. Date: 05/01/2008
Publisher: Carolina Academic Press
Honor Bound is an intriguing book that explains the law of war and the inside story of military commissions. The author is a former JAG lawyer who served on the prosecution team, worked in Guantanamo Bay, and was legal advisor to an elite team of war crimes investigators. Through a series of entertaining vignettes, Rotunda discusses and analyzes the laws governing the war on terror, the Geneva Conventions, and the laws related to detainees held in Cuba.
Readers will look at Marine Corps training in Quantico, Virginia; learn about Gitmo's detention camp through the author's experiences with real detainees and real interrogators; travel the globe with "terrorist hunters" following investigatory leads; see what went wrong in Gitmo and with the military commissions; meet Private Jessica Lynch; and learn about laws that protect the combat wounded. Scholarly and informative, this book is also a fascinating and engaging read.
"This eye-opening inside account must be read by everyone who cares about balancing national security and human dignity." - Alan M. Dershowitz, Harvard Law School Professor and author of Finding Jefferson
