Would you give up everything to fight a war in an alien land? In recent years, many have joined the ranks of the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, but very little is known about the volunteers from North America, Europe & Australia that have legally joined the ranks of Kurdish forces. While volunteers claim that they felt a calling to do good, something more might be at play. As air forces inflict most of the damage, who is benefiting most from the presence of Western fighters? Are they being used for propaganda by the Kurdish army or are they chasing a high that only war can provide?
