Summary
This is the story of how an ordinary Iraqi became a hero to America's elite warriors. Night after night, while his homeland was being destroyed around him, he guided the U.S. Navy SEALs through Iraq's most dangerous regions. Operating under the code name "Johnny Walker," he risked his life on more than a thousand missions and became a legend in the U.S. special-ops community. But in the eyes of Iraq's terrorists and insurgents, he and his family were marked for death because he worked with the Americans. Over the course of eight years, Johnny Walker unmasked countless terrorists and helped foil an untold number of plots against Americans and their allies. He went on hundreds of missions, saved dozens of American lives and risked his own life daily. He and his family lived in constant jeopardy, surviving multiple assassination attempts. Today they live in the United States, where he remains in the fight by helping train the next generation of American special-operations warriors.--From publisher description

Summary
"Johnny Walker" is the code name for an Iraqi translator who worked with American Special Forces during the post-9/11 war in Iraq, and who is now an American citizen. He maintains his code name to protect his relatives who remain in Iraq. In this riveting, thought-provoking memoir, "Walker" explains what motivated him to work with Americans and what it meant to be a civilian translator with Navy SEALs -- he had to be as ready for combat as they were. Eventually, he had to leave Iraq because assassins were targeting him. Code Name Johnny Walker offers an engaging, candid, and eye-opening view of the war and of one man's personal commitment to his own and his adopted country. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
