She risked everything to stop an unjust war. Her government called her a traitor. This is the gripping story of Katharine Gun, a British intelligence specialist whose job involves routine handling of classified information.
One day in 2003, in the lead up to the Iraq War, Gun receives a memo from the NSA with a shocking directive: the United States is enlisting Britain’s help in collecting compromising information on United Nations Security Council members in order to blackmail them into voting in favour of an invasion of Iraq. Unable to stand by and watch the world be rushed into an illegal war, Gun makes the tormentous decision to defy her government and leak the memo to the press. So begins an explosive chain of events that will ignite an international firestorm, expose a vast political conspiracy, and put Gun and her family directly in harm’s way.
