Who speaks for the dead? Savings at the expense of safety have killed too many British servicemen. This book discusses over one hundred avoidable fatalities that occurred between 1987 and 2016, all linked by maladministration. They include Sea King ASaC Mk7, the Tornado ZG710 / Patriot shootdown, Snatch Land Rovers, the Kajaki Dam minefield incident and Nimrod XV230. Evidence concealed from inquiries and families is revealed for the first time. With the active participation of government, this cover-up protected the guilty. Instead, innocent people were named and shamed. These gross breaches of the Military Covenant made recurrence more likely. Our servicemen deserve better.
