Housam Najjair, also known as “Irish Sam”, is an Irish-Libyan writer renowned for his book “Soldier For a Summer”. The book charts Najjair’s journey to Libya and tells an astounding story of how a young Irish-Libyan revolutionary joined the uprising against Gaddafi and become a commander of the National Liberation Army of Libya unit to fight and ultimately secure the liberation of Tripoli and the overthrow of the dictatorship. This is one of the rare books covering the events in the Libyan revolution from the viewpoint of an international combatant.
