Nubar Aroyan pens a new book about his experiences in Egypt’s Military and his stunning deliverance from it after more than four unforgettably harsh years of service.
“Diary of a Soldier in the Egyptian Military: A Peek Inside the Egyptian Army” (published by WestBow Press) relates author Nubar Aroyan’s compulsory draft into the Egyptian Army, his unique experiences with circumstances and characters in that institution and finally his perilous escape and safe arrival in America.
“Diary of a Soldier in the Egyptian Military” is the story of a Christian young man’s experiences in the Egyptian military during the trying years between the Six-Day War of 1967 and the Yom Kippur/Ramadan War of 1973. It relates his forced draft, his eventful life in the Army and after more than four years of service with no end in sight, in total desperation, his nail-biting tale of escape from the army and the country and arrival in America.
This book was written to express Aroyan’s deep gratitude to the Lord for His fatherly care while serving the Egyptian military, which he describes as “the toughest trial of my life”, and at the end, riding on His wings, his miraculous deliverance from that harsh institution. It is a testimony to God’s invisible but real protection of his trusting child.
