After six years, £9m and countless postponements, the report of Sir John Chilcot's inquiry into Britain's involvement in the Iraq war remains unpublished. In January 2015 it was announced that it would not be published this side of the general election. Will the British public ever be told the truth about a conflict that millions of them opposed, whose lethal fallout can still be felt across the world today? In the absence of an official account, this publication - based on evidence given to the inquiry and other accounts that are already in the public domain - is an attempt to set down in writing, as objectively as possible, the known facts and unresolved questions of one of the most bitterly controversial episodes in recent British history.
