Editorial Reviews

Unknown

'A true story as riveting as any thriller, In the Shadow of Freedom kept me on the couch all day Sunday. From his bravery as a child soldier in the Congo, to his courage serving our country, Tchicaya Missamou is the new American hero. You'll never forget his inspiring life.'' -- Judy A. Bernstein, Co-Author of They Poured Fire On Us From the Sky: The True Story of Three Lost Boys of Sudan

"Sgt. Missamou's journey from child soldier in central Africa to United States Marine to American entrepreneur reads like a thriller, but there are powerful lessons in his story. With great love for his family, friends, and his adopted homeland, his life is testimony that what violence destroys, people of courage can rebuild." --Charles London, author of
One Day the Soldiers Came

"A compelling story of ordeal and courage. Tchicaya beautifully shares his struggles as a militia during Congo's civil war, his daring escape to Europe and America, and his bravery as a United States marine serving in Iraq." --Joseph Sebarenzi, author of
God Sleeps in Rwanda: A Journey of Transformation


"This book reads like an epic poem. Briskly paced, each image and experience sharply crafted,
In the Shadow of Freedom relates the story of a heroic journey that is both timeless and contemporary. Tchicaya Missamou should be commended not only for his outstanding service as a U.S. Marine, but for his extraordinary gifts as a masterful storyteller." -- Andrew Carroll, editor of bestsellers War Letters and Behind the Lines

“A polished, engaging story of courage and will.” –
Kirkus Reviews

"The patriotic message about America, “my true home,” is hardearned and heartfelt." --
