About the Book :

 The book “Barefoot War” is a narrative of the war, the warriors who stood against armed to teeth enemy and bend over backward. In return to home, they get bored of the materiality of the society and continue to live in their huts against palaces of the rich in the lap of luxury. In his memoirs, the writer quotes the pain of those who have provided youth, health, and well-being, of themselves and their families for the Islamic revolution, but in return, they are subject to unkindness. In his memoirs, he described surrounding of warriors by Iraqi forces, breaking the surround with the sacrifice of one of the warriors, the martyrdom of the commander of the battalion, the situation of the wounded, the warming up, retreating, the situation and condition of all his companions in the combat operation, and their efforts and the memory of his companion martyrs. In the end, he speaks of his return to Tehran after accepting Resolution 598 and his normal life as a teacher. This book has 24 stories and at the beginning of each story, there is a verse from the Quran that is related to the story. The writer portrays beautifully the hard life of the barefoot warriors alongside the colorful swampy life of the rich. The book is a reflection of the suffering of barefooted people, which, in comparison to the sacrifice of them, seems to be painful, bitter and unacceptable. In other narratives of this front, the most prominent and sweet thing is the humility and neglecting their works against the work of others who have tried and wore on other fronts but against the same enemy and for the love of God. Although the danger is not the same in all fields, they should not consider all those who were not present in the front as earthly people with earthy attachments, and they should not le the others down because of the trouble and suffering that they themselves have born for the sake of God. These traits are pure and the righteous. The book “Barefoot War” is written in the form of daily notes, but relies on narrative-fiction techniques.
