“The Truth About the Crisis in Iraq” possesses the stentorian ring of authenticity. Joshua Ledra, with ten years on the ground as a leader in restoring the infrastructure of Iraq, has returned with a great first person story and much more. Nuggets of historical insight on religion, culture and politics transfer directly into the current and future predicaments and directions unfolding in Iraq and surrounding countries. Knowledge is one thing - what Joshua Ledra brings the reader is wisdom. It’s a fascinating read from cover to cover!
