Although the author was a retired military officer, I feel he did a pretty objective job in clarifying the misinformation we get from the media. If you want to keep you head in the sand and believe what you’ve seen or read in the media and/or the detainees are innocent farmers don’t read it. If you want a get and understanding of what these detainees have done, what they will (and have done) since being released I’d encourage you to read it. If you want to see what I’d consider incredible working conditions out service members are working in and what they have to put up with, read it. Easy read and informative.

There have many horrific storied in the past years about the tortures and perils of Guantanamo Bay. Stories that sound to terrible to be true, begging the question, are they really true? The book Inside Gitmo by Gordon Cucullu provides facts to these stories and explores the truth behind the myths of Guantanamo Bay. In doing so he finds new stories to be told, un-heard facts about the prison. He also puts and end to other stories that are circulating around this so called "horrible" place. I personally like this book and all the new knowledge i gained from it. It shows you whats really going on down there instead of you having to just believe the common stories you hear. With so much research and first hand experience put into this book, there is no doubt that what your reading is the truth. I recommend this book to someone who likes to read about war, prison, the government or anyone who just wants to read a good book and learn a little bit about there country and whats going on down in Guantanamo Bay. I haven't read any other books quite like this but other books i like that i would recommend that are sort of the same topic is "My Hitch in Hell" and "The Band of Brothers" (book version). This was overall a great book and i would give it a 9 out of 10!

It is clear from reading Inside Gitmo, that the author has invested much of himself, both personally and professionally, in order to finally provide some truths to counter what has been written about Guantanamo Bay to date. The research is top notch....see the companion website for sources listed including links to online documentation which is fantastic. As a masters student of International Relations who is currently researching this topic for my thesis, I have found Lt. Col. Cucullu's book an absolute necessity. This is an amazing book, I would recommend it to anyone who is wanting to know what is really going on inside Gitmo. Many thanks to Lt. Col. Cucullu for bringing these facts to light.

This book should be a must read for all. It gives an insight into what our Military does for us. The facts about how we pamper the enemy is done by no other country in the world. I would recommend this book to all searchers for the truth. The truth is told both good and bad.
