The British in Iraq
A gripping account of the moral and political challenges posed by the Iraq war from the Costa Award winning author of The Volunteer When Tony Blair plunged Britain into war he thought that, shortly thereafter, Iraq would emerge as a peaceful democracy.

Boek cover The Good War van Jack Fairweather (Onbekend)
Why We Couldn’t Win the War or the Peace in Afghanistan
A timely lesson in the perils of nation-building and a sobering reminder of the limits of military power from the Costa Award winning author of The Volunteer. In its earliest days, the American-led war in Afghanistan appeared to be a triumph - a "good war' in comparison to the debacle in Iraq.

Boek cover Vrijwillig naar Auschwitz van Jack Fairweather (Paperback)
Witold Pilecki, de man die in Auschwitz infiltreerde
De Poolse vrijheidsstrijder Witold Pilecki was een van de grootste helden uit de Tweede Wereldoorlog. Dit is zijn verhaal. Als de enige persoon die zich ooit vrijwillig naar Auschwitz heeft laten sturen, leidde Pilecki jarenlang een campagne om nazibewakers te saboteren en vermoorden. Hij maakte een dramatische ontsnapping, terwijl hij bewijs van de Holocaust naar de westerse mogendheden smokkelde en hen waarschuwde voor de wreedheden in de nazivernietigingskampen. Al het bewijs van Pilecki was verloren gegaan – tot 2012, toen zijn ongelofelijke ooggetuigenrapport werd gevonden in een...
