|The final volume of Alastair Campbell's diaries cover the period that came to haunt Tony Blair's premiership -- the attacks on 9/11 and the Iraq war in 2003. The diaries show that Blair was convinced it was right to take action against Saddam Hussein but they show his frustration with members of the US administration, such as Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, who wanted to bypass the UN. Campbell gives a vivid account of the pressures on the prime minister who was even lobbied by Rupert Murdoch to speed up military action.|
