About the Book:
Seyyed Nooraddin A’fi was born in a village near Tabriz in a populous family. During the Revolution, he participated in marches and revolutionary activities. With the onset of the war, he wanted to set off the front, but he was not accepted because of his young age. He repeatedly and repeatedly proceeded, until he finally succeeded. When he set off the war zone, his younger brother, Sadegh, went along with him and was martyred in a bombardment of the Iraqi air strike against the eyes of Nooraddin. Twenty-four shrapnel shells struck the body of Nooraddin. He participated in many operations and was repeatedly wounded and, although he had 70% disability, he returned to the front every time after a relative recovery. At age 18, his face is completely lost its shape due to severe injuries and surgeries. After the end of the war, he went to Germany for treatment and underwent surgery again and, at his request, went back to Iran before the deadline. Nooraddin still has physical and nostalgic distresses away from his martyred friends.
