A gripping, fast-paced account of one man's journey to Iraq and back, as a member of the National Guard during the height of the Iraq War.

"Battle Scars, a reluctant warrior in Iraq" is sure to be remembered as a classic tale of wartime service and romance.

A commercial airline pilot, facing job insecurity due to the after-effects of the 9/11 attacks and the bankruptcy of his once proud airline, reluctantly joins the National Guard as an engineering officer.

However, through an unexpected series of events beyond his control, he finds himself involuntarily called to active-duty and sent to Iraq to command a unit of combat engineers for the U.S. Army Special Forces.

Along the way, he must bring together a group of diverse young men and women, do his part to rebuild Iraq, and bring them all home safely.

During this time, he experiences the shock of sudden and random combat, the burden of unwanted responsibility in an unwanted war, and the passion of a romance with a beautiful Army Reserve dentist, consummated under fire.

"Battle Scars, a reluctant warrior in Iraq" cuts to the heart and soul of those who served in this conflict. You won't be able to put it down.
