Tony Blair always claimed that history would judge his decision to invade Iraq.

This revelatory and at times jaw-dropping account of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan reveals the truth about our soldiers' battle for survival. Jack Fairweather details the cost of the war, set agaisnt a backdrop of misunderstanding, beaurocracy and an overwhelming clash of cultures.

From the embattled British outposts and insurgent hideouts of southern Iraq to the intense debates the war provoked inside 10 Downing Street and the Whitehouse, here is the terrifying truth about Britain’s involvement in Iraq.

Review:

"Sound, vivid and enhanced by his modesty - there is no "as the bullets flew around my head" here. He simply describes in cool prose how Britain's share in the western allies' initial 2003 success in deposing Saddam Hussein and occupying Iraq tuned into a nightmare struggle against insurgency" (Max Hastings Sunday Times)

"It makes for one of the best histories of the aftermath of war, and a staggering story of the betrayal of everything it was fought for" ( Good Book Guide)

"A rollercoaster narrative of heroism, mismanagement and disaster... as gripping as any novel" (Robert Irwin)

"It does what the Chilcot Inquiry should do, but probably won't" (Robert Fox Evening Standard, Books of the Year)

"A compelling history of the seamy realities of war in both Iraq and Afghanistan, it combines the vivideness of front-line reporting with detached and incisive analysis. A War of Choice should become the definitive account of this era" (Alistair Horne)

Book Description:

The remarkable, true story of Britain's role in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, by an award-winning journalist.
