In the background of the war in Iraq is an invisible army -- one that numbers more than 30,000, yet few Americans know about it. It is an army of low-wage workers imported from South and Southeast Asia to cook food, wash laundry, and deliver fuel. Told through the eyes of three Filipino workers and their families, Someone Else's War provides an intimate look into the forces of poverty and desperation that persuade workers to risk their lives for the chance at a better life in Iraq.
