Fighting Evil by Macer Gifford
Fighting Evil: The Ordinary
Man who went to War Against ISIS by Andy McNab
A visceral, riveting, no-holds-barred military memoir told from the front
line of the war against ISIS with a foreword by Andy McNab.
In the summer of 2014 the world watched in horror as the black flag of ISIS
swept all before it. Mosul, the second largest city in Iraq fell, ISIS
proclaimed the caliphate and the horror mounted: from the mass murder, rape
and enslavement of the Yazidis to the public beheading of journalists by
British jihadis. For Macer Gifford it wasn’t enough to ask why more wasn’t
being done, he knew he had to act. So, he left his job in the city, split
from his girlfriend and a few weeks later found himself illegally crossing
the border into Syria to join the Kurdish YPG in their fight against the
savagery of ISIS.
Macer Gifford became one of longest serving British International
Volunteers and one of the only few to be promoted to be a Commander in the
YPG. He fought alongside the Kurds (and their Syrian Allies) for three long
tours of duty from the dawn of the caliphate all the way to its military
defeat in the ruins of Raqqa in 2017, sniping at the final deadly wave of
suicide bombers as they burst from the rubble. Along the way, he made – and
lost – many friends.
This is the only complete account of the war against the Caliphate by the
Kurds and the remarkable and often eccentric band of international volunteers
who fought alongside them.
