As Syria imploded in civil battle in 2011, Kurdish volunteers within the north rose as much as unfastened their native land from centuries of repression and create a innovative sanctuary of tolerance and democracy. To the medievalists of ISIS, this used to be an affront, in order that they accrued 10,000 males, heavy artillery, tanks, mortars and ranks of suicide bombers to weigh down the rebellion. Against them stood 2,500 volunteer combatants armed with 40-year-old rifles. There used to be just one method for the Kurds to continue to exist. They must kill the invaders one at a time.
A decade previous, as a 19-year-old Iranian military conscript, Azad have been compelled to combat his personal other people. Instead he abandoned and sought asylum in Britain. Now, as he returned to his native land to lend a hand construct a brand new Kurdistan, he discovered he must select up a gun another time. In September 2014, Azad become one among 17 snipers deployed when ISIS besieged the northern town of Kobani.
In Long Shot, Azad tells the interior tale of ways a bunch of activists and intellectuals constructed their very own military and crew of snipers, after which fought off a ferocious attack in 9 months of sour and bloody side road battles. By turns searing, stirring, inspiring and poetic, that is an distinctive account of contemporary battle and of ways, in opposition to all odds, a couple of thousand women and men completed the unattainable and stored their dream of freedom alive.
