"Modern warfare isn’t like the movies. You can’t film death any more. Only its aftermath . . ."
Saudi Arabia, 1991. Swept up in the speed of the land battle, top TV journalist David Challis films the Gulf War as a triumph of good over evil. But how much of his story is real? And how much of it is what others want him to say?
Back in London, still reeling from the tragic death of a colleague in the desert, Challis begins to re-examine the evidence and stumbles on a conspiracy more frightening than any war documentary would ever dare reveal. With billions at stake in weapons’ sales, someone has been using the background of the Gulf War to play a terrifying new game. With the British and American governments. With Arab dictators. And with innocent people’s lives . . .
