"A revealing, real-life courtroom drama, reminiscent of A Few Good Men."--Hunter R. Clark, Director, International Law and Human Rights Program, Drake University Law School

Product Description

"A revealing, real-life courtroom drama, reminiscent of A Few Good Men."--Hunter R. Clark, Director, International Law and Human Rights Program, Drake University Law School

In 2007, U.S. Army Specialist Jorge G. Sandoval Jr. was charged with murder by the very government he had sworn to serve.

While deployed to the most dangerous area in Iraq known as the "Triangle of Death," Sandoval, an airborne infantryman and elite sniper, was instructed to "take the shot" and kill an enemy insurgent wearing civilian clothes. Two weeks later, Army Criminal Investigation Command descended upon Sandoval's unit and began interrogating the soldiers, trying to link Sandoval and others to war crimes, including murder.

Captain Craig W. Drummond was the JAG military defense attorney assigned to Sandoval's case. "The case blew up and was closely followed by reporters around the world. After all, a soldier is trained to follow orders, not ask questions or second-guess authority. I knew I needed to prove his innocence or risk other soldiers being tried and convicted for simply doing their job."

SAVING SANDOVAL covers the events from the moment the trigger is pulled through the trial in a U.S. military compound on the outskirts of Baghdad during the height of U.S. military surge of troops into Iraq. The book brings the reader into the reality of modern warfare in a post September 11th environment where the enemy does not always wear a uniform and if an event makes headlines military leaders are quick to point the blame on the lowest ranking soldiers regardless of the injustice. The fast-paced and detailed account of the investigation and trial testimony from elite Army snipers brings the reader into the courtroom and onto the battlefield of Iraq.

SAVING SANDOVAL IN THE NEWS
On October 26, 2017, the St. Joseph News Press wrote and article and book review about Saving Sandoval. The review states: "The book, written with the blessing of the soldier accused of the killing, stands as a courtroom procedural, a story of the military at work and a portrait of finding justice in a convoluted landscape of modern war."

On September 2, 2017, The Nevada Veterans Reporter newspaper published an article highlighting Saving Sandoval. The article reads: "While deployed to the most dangerous area in Iraq known as the "Triangle of Death," Specialist Sandoval, an airborne infantryman and elite sniper, was instructed to "take the shot" and kill an enemy insurgent wearing civilian clothes. Two weeks later, Army investigators descended upon Sandoval's unit and began interrogating the soldiers, trying to link Sandoval and others to war crimes, including murder."
