“I don’t worry about them being killed. But if they’re captured, well, that’s a bigger problem.” On 19 July 2012 armed Syrian rebels moved from the surrounding towns and countryside to launch an attack on Syria’s biggest city, Aleppo. Journalist James Harkin was in Northern Syria at the time and, in over fifteen thousand words of gripping and often moving reportage he tell “I don’t worry about them being killed. But if they’re captured, well, that’s a bigger problem.” On 19 July 2012 armed Syrian rebels moved from the surrounding towns and countryside to launch an attack on Syria’s biggest city, Aleppo. Journalist James Harkin was in Northern Syria at the time and, in over fifteen thousand words of gripping and often moving reportage he tells the story of the battle for Aleppo province through the fortunes of one family which played a significant role in it – before, during, and after the initial assault on Aleppo. Moving from a refugee camp on the Turkish border to a trip inside Aleppo with the armed rebels, to interviews in Istanbul and Antakya and then another journey into Syria’s Idlib province, this short book (15000 words) sheds light on the human dimension of Syria’s armed insurgency. With interviews from senior rebel commanders, fresh detail on the make-up and organisation of the Free Syrian Army, reporting on the weapons trail and new information on contacts between the American State Department and the rebels, War Against All illustrates the tribal context of the armed insurgency and the terrible dilemmas which confront many Syrian families - as their fight for freedom risks becoming snagged in larger geo-political rivalries which have little to do with them.
