By means of interviews with, and contributions from, prominent international figures, Axis of Freedom examines the dramatic world events which unfolded from 11 September 2001 to the end of occupation of Iraq in the summer of 2004. Many books have been written on the war on terror, but none include the personal views and opinions of so many top military and political leaders. The contributions are linked by a series of essays to form a compelling narrative of the new way of war. In their own words the key decision-makers such as Donald Rumsfeld, Richard Perle and Geoff Hoon talk about the strategic dilemmas. The military implementation of the political decisions are discussed by leaders such as the head of the US Air Force, the former British Chief of Defence Staff, Lord Guthrie, and the Royal NavyÕs First Sea Lord. Highly charged critiques by George Galloway MP are also included, as well as IraqÕs deputy prime minister, Tariq Aziz, who was interviewed on the eve of the war. Senior foreign correspondents such as Channel FourÕs Lindsey Hilsum add their own frontline assessments. In addition, leading academic analysts such as Dr Paul Cornish put the political and military debates in context.

Prof Paul Moorcraft

About Prof Paul Moorcraft

Professor Paul Moorcraft has written over 50 books, both fiction and non-fiction. Besides being a senior instructor at the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst, and then the Joint Services Command and Staff College, he worked for the UK Ministry of Defence in the Balkans and Middle East. A print and broadcast journalist in 30 war zones, the author worked extensively behind ‘enemy’ lines, most notably with Jihadists during the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. He has worked with, and reported on, special forces in countries as far apart as Nepal and South Africa, as well as serving as an officer in Zimbabwe’s forces. His command of German, and later Hebrew, supported the initial research for this book. His fluency in Welsh has been useful too as some of the Jewish commandos lived and trained in North Wales and indeed sometimes successfully claimed to be Welsh when captured. The author has also worked in desert war zones, most recently during six trips in Darfur, Sudan, where he spent time with rebel groups and separately with Sudanese government forces
A fellow of the Royal Historical Society, he returned to his Welsh homeland in 2021.
