"Iraq: A Tribute to Britain's Fallen Heroes" tells the stories of the 176 UK personnel who have so far died serving with British Forces in Iraq, the most controversial conflict to have involved Her Majesty's Services for a century. Who are these brave men and women, how and why did they die, and in whose name? With no statue or memorial in place, this book is their only collective testimony. Every soldier, sailor and airman who has perished is recalled here by those they left behind and the colleagues who saw them die.The youngest were aged just 18 and barely old enough to be deployed, while the oldest fatality to date was a 55-year-old fireman. Author Mark Nicol weaves cherished memories from families and friends with analysis of the policies that shaped the British military experience in Iraq. Particular attention is paid to some of the largest single losses of life, such as the deaths of the six Red Caps at Majar al-Kabir and the shooting down of an RAF transport aircraft. This book is a comprehensive chronology of the conflict from the British perspective and a scrupulous work of contemporary military history. It is as emotive as it is incisive and evidential, and as such is an essential read.
