Providing insight into Chelsea Manning's background, this biography paints a nuanced portrait that disputes her depiction in the mainstream media. As the alleged source to WikiLeaks for the biggest breach of military security in American history, Chelsea Manning has been inaccurately described as a combative outcast, a bullied and embittered homosexual, and a loser grasping for notoriety; however, this exploration into her past depicts a young woman haunted by demons and driven by hope, forced into an ethically fraught situation by a dysfunctional military bureaucracy. The Manning this book uncovers is impulsive and cocky, yet idealistic enough to follow her conscience. In leaking a vast collection of American secrets, she thought she was doing the right thing. Her story is one of global significance, and yet she remains an enigma. Now, for the first time, the full truth will be told about a woman who, at the age of only 22, changed the world.

We are located in the heart of Chicago, in the city's River North neighborhood.
