    I could not put this book down! This book is about an interrogator's experience from training, through employment and finally post military. Many themes that this book describes were all too familiar to my own family's experience. Don't expect happy stories and good feelings from this. It's raw and it's real. This is the reality of many soldiers I know. Long hours, lack of sleep, intense awareness of surroundings, constant explosives, no leadership that has your back and difficulty reintegrating I could not put this book down!

Long hours, lack of sleep, intense awareness of surroundings, constant explosives, no leadership that has your back and difficulty reintegrating. This also calls attention to how our politicians fail our military. Policies made in WA D.C. have REAL consequences in the day to day operations of our military. There's a problem when terrorists have more protections than US citizens. The reality of PTSD and lack of quality help is addressed. As is the helplessness of spouses and the difficulty of the "new" normal of home life. God bless our troops and their innumerable sacrifices!

    In Interview with a Terrorist, James Rosone reveals the truth about what may be one of the most misunderstood jobs in the military: that of interrogator. He is brutally honest, both about what the job entails and what it can do to the interrogator. He debunks many myths about interrogators (do they use stress positions or waterboarding?) and touches on how careful military interrogators need to be in order to stay within the law.

He is brutally honest, both about what the job entails and what it can do to the interrogator. He debunks many myths about interrogators (do they use stress positions or waterboarding?) and touches on how careful military interrogators need to be in order to stay within the law. His voice is straightforward and very human; you feel as though he's speaking to you almost as a friend. But, be warned, this book doesn't read like a novel. That's not a bad thing, especially with this type of book, just something that the reader needs to be aware of. Recommended for: anyone who enjoys books about military life and is curious just how interrogators get information out of terrorists. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

    Fascinating read I found this book extremely educational and well written. Prior to reading this book I had very little knowledge on the Iraq war. It is written in such a way that it is accessible to the average reader. The book is rich in detail and descriptions. I definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in the life of an interrogator.

Sit next to the most infamous terrorist and see what it felt like to be inside the mind of the person interviewing them. This book revolves around Mr. James Rosone, his experience as a United States Interrogator, his trials, and his internal struggles with the job as he clashes with the reapers of the desert. In his personal account and honest retelling of the events that unfolded during the troubling period of the War on Terror--he takes you not just to the beginning but to the end where every soldier faces his or her own inner demons. The story opened my eyes to things I was unaware of, and It taught me a good deal about the difficulty and frustrations every soldier goes through and what it means to be in that dimly lit room next to a possible murderer trying to gather information. Every second matters when countless lives are at stake. Many of us don't understand what these men and women go through on the daily basis, and we understand less as to what happens in those interrogation rooms where an entire war could be won or lost on. We are constantly influenced by media, and assume that things occur the way it does in movies, but this story sheds light on that false assumption. The threat they face, not just from outside, but from within is a weight that can break the weak-hearted. Any wrong move can jeopardize your entire life or that of others, and Mr. Rosone brings that to awareness. I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking to understand what it means to be an interrogator, soldier, or anyone in the justice department. The choices you make, every outcome, all of it can move the world in some way. This book is a powerful account of a man that desired to be a hero, and his journey. Many military folk should consider reading.

    Everyone should read this book As a retired military guy it brought tears to my eyes at times. I'll never forget being called a "baby killer" when I came back in 1970 after two years. It never ceases to amaze me how the pc lawyers and politicians who are too good to ever put a uniform on can send us in to do their dirty work and then call us criminals for doing our duty. Within the sometimes suicidal rules they concoct. God bless you and all like you. RMW retired AF major

    Review of book I enjoyed the descriptions of the detainees and the methods of interrogation used. Reading how you decided what approach to take with each detainee was very interesting. The whole process is very intriguing. Also, to hear about the conditions you endured. Being in the middle of an active conflict but having to function effectively each day. Thank you for sharing your victories and your difficulties while performing your job at a such an effective level.

    While Drinking My Daily Coffee Very interesting and disturbing read but I know that in this world, people like the author is needed. My way of life and the future of my grandsons, depend on them. Like it or not, a military interrogator is needed. Or we may have another 911. Read for enlightenment and gratitude for our safety.

    Very interesting I read this in one day. I found it to be interesting and covering an area of the war not usually talked about. The writing is well done and flows easily. Very good book.

    Once I started reading this book I never wanted to put it down. I found it interesting to hear about how some things functioned in the military that I wouldn't have guessed before. Thank you for your service and the great book.

    Grateful for his sacrifice Few people would open up and be as honest about a very personal and dangerous experience they had while serving their country. This book made me more grateful for the personal sacrifices our soldiers have survived or endured in order to keep us free.

    MWSA Review Interview with a Terrorist is an interesting and provocative firsthand account of author James Rosone’s time in Iraq with the United States Army. In 2006, Rosone trained for human intelligence gathering and deployed to Camp Striker in Iraq.

In 2006, Rosone trained for human intelligence gathering and deployed to Camp Striker in Iraq. From the training on how to stay within the letter of the law to his homecoming trip, the book details the eighteen months that affected his life in ways that could not be imagined. Daily contact with some of the worst members of terrorist groups as well as living conditions the American military endured as a matter of course produced a determination to make a difference to our fighting forces, our country, and the world at large. Most members of the American public know little of the day to day grind of our military men and women who interrogate terrorists for human intelligence. Instead we have all too often relied on the sensationalist media and Hollywood’s version of the truth. This book provides an unvarnished antidote through the eyes of someone who actually spent time doing the work. Review by Betsy Beard (June 2019)
