Boek cover The Good War van Jack Fairweather (Onbekend)
Why We Couldn’t Win the War or the Peace in Afghanistan
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. It has since turned into one of the longest and most expensive wars in recent history. The story of how this good war went so bad may well turn out to be a defining tragedy of the twenty-first century - yet, as acclaimed war correspondent Jack Fairweather explains, it should also give us reason to hope for an outcome grounded in Afghan reality. In The Good War, Fairweather provides the first full narrative history of the war in Afghanistan, from the 2001...

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...
