Summary The harrowing journey of three U.S. military veterans who became whistleblowers, determined to break the silence surrounding America's secret drone war. Tortured by guilt for their participation in the killing of faceless terror suspects, and despite the threat of being prosecuted, these three veterans offer an unprecedented look inside this secret program to reveal the haunting cost of America's global drone strikes.
