Summary
On 29 August 2012 Private Robert Poate, Lance Corporal Rick Milosevic and Sapper James Martin were killed during an insider -- or green on blue -- attack in Afghanistan. Their killer: a supposed ally, was a Taliban sleeper in the ranks of the Afghan National Army. Information provided to the families by rank-and-file soldiers after the event shocked them. When the heavily redacted internal investigation report excluded a plethora of incriminating facts. This book is the result of a father's quest to find out truth behind the death of his soldier son. Hugh's search reveals a labyrinth of excuses, denials, half-truths, cover-ups, contrived secrecy, incompetence, negligence, orders not followed and lessons not learnt
