'Voices from the Front is a rich tapestry of oral testimonies that defy easy categorization. While some former Turkish soldiers embrace the war on Kurdish guerrillas as patriotic adventure, others detest the discipline, boredom, filth, and fear. They, too, are victims of militarism and machismo. Mater, a famed journalist and peace activist, conveys their stories with great integrity and courage. '
- James Ron, Canada Research Chair in Conflict and Human Rights, McGill University, and author of Frontiers and Ghettos: State Violence in Serbia and Israel
'Voices from the Front bears the extraordinary stories soldiers brought back with them, with the power of Michael Herr's Dispatches. It provides remarkable insight into today's Turkey and is a brave, disturbing and uncompromising look at the war the world missed but that is all too typical of modern warfare.
