Elvir Kulin was a quiet, shy teenager living in Hrasnica, a settlement next to Sarajevo. He worked in his sister's grocery store and studied to be an English teacher. Then the war came. The grocery store closed, and shells rained on his settlement. He saw some of his neighbors die from shrapnel wounds and witnessed UN troops allowing Serbian soldiers to kill 11 Bosnian civilians at the Sarajevo Airport. With only a week's training, Kulin was sent to the front line and was shelled and shot at on his first day because a fellow soldier yelled insults at Serbian soldiers across a minefield.

This book is about all these occurrences and more. It is the memoir of Elvir Kulin, a young Muslim Bosnian soldier, who fought for three years in the war in Bosnia.
