About this title

Synopsis:

After a distinguished career in the military -- most of it in elite Ranger, Special Forces, and counter-terrorist units -- Stan Goff refused to turn away from the implications of his own experience. In Haiti, unable to any longer support the contradictions between what the foreign policy establishment said and what the US military did, he took sides with Haitian democratic forces.

This book is a look inside US foreign policy, inside the world of "Special Operations, " and inside the racist history of American imperial domination of Haiti. It is also a deeply personal account of a man trapped between his emerging political consciousness and the cynical mandates of his final days as a soldier.

Anyone who has ever made suppositions about the military or about Haiti -- for or against -- needs to read this account. It's a real account, of real people, for real people. It makes the Haitians and the soldiers recognizable. This book withers the myths about both.
