Overview

Finished in 2003, this fictional memoir is written from the point of view of an Al-Qaeda fighter and details his personal involvement in a jihad, holy war, against the western powers. The story is told in 2007, as the narrator remembers his 20 years of conflict. Osama bin Laden is involved throughout the story and, while the period from mid-2003 to 2007 is entirely speculative, chapters detailing the formation and development of Al-Qaeda are accurate and based on extensive research. Quotations from The Qur'an are sourced from ‘The Meaning of the Glorious Qur'an', an explanatory translation by Mohammad Marmaduke Pickthall, published by the Islamic Cultural Centre, London NW8 7RG. Proclamations and declarations by Al-Qaeda leaders in quotation marks are real. For clarity, dates are given in the western calendar.
