In this illuminating and informative memoir, an Iraqi translator who risked his life working with Navy SEAL and American Sniper author Chris Kyle tells his remarkable and inspiring story, offering a refreshing new perspective on the Iraq War

A translator for the American military during the Iraq War, Johnny Walker is a true hero—a paragon of bravery and unwavering dedication who played a crucial role aiding Americans in the conflict. Devoted to establishing freedom and democracy in his country, he helped soldiers like Chris Kyle and his SEAL team navigate the language barrier and unfamiliar cultural terrain, sometimes even fighting beside them.

Thanks to Johnny Walker, US forces successfully executed a number of operations, and his contributions, including providing crucial intelligence, saved numerous American lives. But it was a job that made him and his family targets for both Iraqi fighters and foreign terrorists. To survive, they fled their homeland and today live in California, where Johnny Walker continues to work with the military, training new SEALs.

Code Name: Johnny Walker is his memoir—a stirring tale of courage and convictions, brotherhood and blood, love and war. Featuring the vivid imagery and gritty down-to-earth appeal of the New York Times bestseller American Sniper, it adds a fascinating and insightful new dimension to the history of the Iraq War.
