Akram's War

by Nadim Safdar

Born in England of Pakistani parents Akram does not seem to fit in anywhere. He is the odd one out in the British army, his arranged marriage is not a happy one and now he has agreed to detonate the bomb in his rucksack. If you have ever wondered about radicalisation this is the book for you. Highly topical and thought-provoking but also a real page-turner.


I am Akram Khan, formerly Sergeant Khan of the Queen's Own Yeomanry, and in a short number of hours, at a place not far from here, loaded and enabled I will submit ... When Allah wills it, and soon He will, it will be time for my eternal sleep, my conclusion.
