"A deserving winner of the Orwell Prize" * Independent * "[An] incendiary, eloquent account... A brilliantly researched indictment which argues that torture is endemic in the military" -- Arifa Akbar * Independent * "For all its forensic detail, the book grips us emotionally, and has as keen a sense of storytelling as a horror story or courtroom drama. Ultimately, the greatest achievement of this incendiary, eloquent and angry book is that it humanises Mousa beyond the iconic and infamous figure he has become in his death" * Judges of the Orwell Prize for Political Writing 2013 * "This is a landmark book. Fluently, meticulously, A. T. Williams allows us to understand both the murderous nature of colonial war and the insidious moral corruption behind its institutional facades" -- John Pilger "What to do after reading it? some might put this book away and try to forget about it, the way you would a bad dream. Others will feel changed by the awareness. A few will channel their feelings into action. There can't be any better definition of political writing at its most excellent" * Independent *
