Why do British citizens volunteer for action in far away countries which they don't know?
In the autumn of 2011, amid the wave of popular action which unseated regimes across the Middle East and North Africa, emergency medicine registrar Dr Saleyha Ahsan got herself into Libya, and set off for the front line - to the battle of Bani Walid.
This is the story of her journey to confront the reality of revolution - and of her own reasons for being there.
