Resistance is a force to be reckoned with ...
The autobiographical memoir of a young Italian humor cartoonist who volunteers to support and observe the Kurdish resistance in Syria as a journalist and aid worker. He winds up in Ayn al-Arab, a majority-Kurd town in the Rojava region of Syria, on the front lines against the encroaching Islamic State, and there he receives a heartbreaking education into the Syrian Civil War.
Kobane Calling: Greetings from Northern Syria, is a detailed contemporary eyewitness account of the ongoing Syrian Civil War and the Kurdish struggle for independence from Syria and their other neighbors, and a travelogue through modern Turkey, Syria, and Kurdistan.
