The Photographs and Journal Entries of Tom Hurndall Released

tom hurndall‘The Only House Left Standing – The Middle East Journals of Tom Hurndall’ has been released on Trolley Books. Robert Fisk wrote the following review in the Independent newspaper.

I don’t know if I met Tom Hurndall. He was one of a bunch of ‘human shields’ who turned up in Baghdad just before the Anglo-American invasion in 2003, the kind of folk we professional reporters make fun of. Tree huggers, that kind of thing. Now I wish I had met him because – looking back over the history of that terrible war – Hurndall’s journals show a remarkable man of remarkable principle. “I may not be a human shield,” he wrote on 17 March from his Amman hotel. “And I may not adhere to the beliefs of those I have travelled with, but the way Britain and America plan to take Iraq is unnecessary and puts soldiers’ lives above those of civilians. For that I hope that Bush and Blair stand trial for war crimes.”
