A Line in the Sand

November 2010

A Line in the Sand continues where FOB Doc left off...The foreword by Prime Minister Stephen Harper sets the tone of book; that Afghanistan is a just war and that Canadians are engaged in a struggle against a merciless enemy who shows no remorse...Wiss doesn't hold back his admiration for his fellow military personnel...[and] his unwavering support of Canada's Afghan mission and his constant praise and glowing descriptions of his fellow soldiers will be welcomed by those in the military as well as their families.”
