Faced with the dichotomy of his moral opposition to war and an innate sense of duty to his fellow soldiers little did F. Scott Service realize when he was called for deployment in Iraq that his tour of duty was destined to change him forever.

Witnessing the violence of a country ravaged by chaos and facing the disintegration of his life back home, his sojourn in Iraq forced him to fight a new battle within himself and to question everything he had come to believe. What had once been a noble intention became a struggle to salvage what was left of his humanity, an excursion into the darkest recesses of the human mind. Pushed to the edge, only then would he discover what lay within.

Author F. Scott Service recounts his wartime experience within an artfully lyrical epistolary composition transcribed from the handwritten journals he kept in Iraq. Lines in the Sand: An American Soldier's Personal Journey in Iraq is a powerful exercise in self-exploration amid heartwrenching loss and anguish.

F. Scott Service lives in New England with his adopted cat Walter and is a full-time author. In his spare time, he tends his garden, cooks, plays guitar, backpacks, travels, and rides his mountain bike. You may connect with him through his website:
