  • Double Crossed

    Brian Wood

    Product Code: BSJDU
    Hardback
    Double Crossed is the Sunday Times bestseller from former Colour Sergeant, Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment.

    At 23 years old, Brian Wood was thrust into the front line in Iraq, in the infamous Battle of Danny Boy. On his return, he was awarded the Military Cross for leading a charge across open ground with insurgents firing at just five soldiers. But Brian's story had only just begun. Struggling to re-integrate into family life, he suffered from PTSD. Five years on, a letter arrived summoning him to give evidence at the Al-Sweady Inquiry into allegations of war crimes by British soldiers during the Iraq invasion of 2003.

    After years of public shame, Brian took the stand and delivered a powerful testimony, and justice was finally served. Phil Shiner, the lawyer who made the false accusations, was struck off and stripped of an honorary doctorate. In this compelling memoir, Brian speaks powerfully about the three battles in his life. It's a remarkable and dark curve which ends with his honour restored but, as he says, it was too little, too late.

But is this the start of a brand-new day--or will this "Rise of Matty" end with the fall of just another petty warlord? Then, Matty retreats into self-exile to take a good, hard look at himself and his conduct since he entered the DMZ, and he doesn't like what he sees. This new cut includes bonus materials including scripts, design concepts and cover sketches. Collects DMZ #45-59.
