This is such a weird book to talk about, because it's an ongoing story, one that's literally developing more and more and more day by day. I'll try to keep this short though.
Originally published in Germany in 2015, the new English (released in either December 2016) edition has been updated.
If I had to describe this book to someone who literally knows nothing about, The Kurds, the PYD, YPG, YPJ, SDF, PKK, MLKP, and a series of other very important acronyms...I'd tell them that it's a great introduction to the people who are inspiring new hope across the globe. So inspiring that they've drawn people to their cause. And most importantly I'd make sure they understood that it's not a book about some long dead movement from before they were born.
