Description
Shoshana Johnson, the first black female soldier in America's history to be taken as a prisoner of war, presents the much-anticipated story of her capture and imprisonment in Iraq and what happened after her rescue. In March 2003, Operation Iraqi Freedom was barely in its infancy when a U.S. Army supply convoy was attacked in Iraq. Several soldiers were killed and six were taken prisoner. Their captors released a grainy video revealing the faces of the first POWs of the war in Iraq. One of the female soldiers was Shoshana Johnson, the first black female prisoner of war in America's military history. The other was Jessica Lynch who caught the media's attention. Now, after years of coming to terms with her capture and its aftermath, Shoshana recounts her full story with candor, exposing her emotions and frustrations and addressing her fears. For the first time, she'll also explain the strange decision made by higher-ups that led to their weapons jamming during the fight so they couldn't defend themselves; the true reason why their convoy made a "wrong turn" which led to their capture; and what, exactly, happened to her and her fellow soldiers during the 22 days of their captivity, which none of them have told because of a military gag order. Her perspective of the ambush is revealing and her insight into life as a female POW inspirational. Shoshana is a living testimony to the power of prayer and the strength that comes through a trusting faith.
