Former British soldier Jim Matthews hit the headlines when he was arrested on terrorism charges - for fighting against ISIS. The charges were eventually dropped.
Jim gave up a lucrative career teaching English in Saudi Arabia; and headed to Northern Syria to fight ISIS. But why; after years as a left-leaning; anti-war protestor; did he find himself pulled once more into a conflict zone?
Did he miss war?
What is the reality for those fighting ISIS in their own country; and for those like Jim who join that fight? This book attempts to explain; in his words; what it's like there...
An intelligent and evocative memoir; Fighting Monsters explores the reasons for one man's war; while bringing to life the twisted roads; broken border towns and dusty battlefields of Syria and Iraq.
