Andrew Williams "A Very British Killing: The Death of Baha Mousa" published by Jonathan Cape: London

On 15th September 2003 Baha Mousa was killed by British Army troops in Iraq. Despite clear evidence of torture and sustained brutality the army’s initial investigation and its later court martial could not uncover who was responsible for the death, a conclusion mocked by the findings of the subsequent public inquiry.

In a candid and unbiased account of one of the most disturbing controversies in recent British military history, Andrew Williams investigates the death of Baha Mousa and lays bare the failures of the British Army’s initial investigation and subsequent court martial, which the Inquiry was prevented from examining.

“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 )

“A meticulous, devastating account of war's modern cruelty and the pursuit of justice.” (Philippe Sands, Author of Lawless World )

“Of immense value to anyone interested in the conduct, and misconduct, of war in our time... It shows why the Iraq story is far from over” (Robert Fox Evening Standard )
