Jack Fairweather takes listeners from besieged British outposts and insurgent hideouts in southern Iraq, to the intense debates inside 10 Downing Street and the White House, in the first full analysis of the true costs of Blair's decision. Drawing on some of the crucial incidents described in his book, he discusses what lessons should be drawn from Iraq, and how Britain must change its approach to foreign intervention.
