Over Christmas and New Year 2006–07 I went to Iraq, Kuwait, Afghanistan and some other countries I cannot name, to entertain the Australian troops. It was not because I wanted to aid the war effort. It was not because I wanted to support the diggers. It was just because I wanted to have a bit of a look. This entertaining and eye-opening book is comedian Tom Gleeson’s account of what he saw when he went to entertain Australian troops in the Middle East. Showing that he’s willing to do anything to get a laugh – even get shot – Tom does all kinds of stuff he would never usually be allowed to do: fire machine guns, drive tanks in a drag race, hang out in the Green Zone in Baghdad, and play poker with the SAS. It’s a trip that changes his life.
