Summary
On September 11th 2001, in a café in London, Ahmed Errachidi watched as the twin towers collapsed. In a series of terrible events, Ahmed was soon sold by the Pakistanis to the Americans and spent 5 and a half years in Guantánamo. There, he was beaten, tortured and humiliated. But Ahmed did not give in. This very ordinary, Moroccan-born London chef became a leader of men. Known by the authorities as The General, he devised protests and resistance by any means possible. But then, Ahmed was freed, his innocence admitted. This is Ahmed's story
