Author Event: Christopher Strom "Brooklyn to Baghdad"

Roanoke Author Christopher Strom will discuss his book Brooklyn to Baghdad Saturday, February 29 at 1 pm.  In this memoir, Strom, a former Marine and retired NYPD Intelligence Division sergeant, describes his time as a lead tactical debriefing officer in Iraq and Afghanistan. 

Kirkus Reviews called the memoir a "terse, detailed account of a no-nonsense cop’s time running interrogations in Iraq."

In October 2007, Chris was recruited by the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization (JIEDDO), a government agency that devised top-secret strategies for combating IEDs in Iraq and Afghanistan. As the lead tactical debriefing officer, he participated in over 110 combat missions and 91 captures of high-value targets (HVTs) in southern Iraq.

The book is available online or at the event.
