Trish Knight's youngest son Ben was killed on 2nd September 2006 when RAF Nimrod XV230 exploded in mid-air over the barren war torn landscape of Southern Afghanistan. All 14 Servicemen on board were killed. Ben was 25 years old. The day after his death Trish and her husband Graham suddenly found themselves in the media spotlight, as this was – and still remains – the largest loss of life in a single incident in the military since the Falklands War.

Since Ben's death Trish has kept a journal, which forms the basis of this book.

Trish wrote this book because, in her words, "This was such a horrendous experience it should not be forgotten" and because she wanted to record as much as possible about Ben and the struggle for the truth. She and her husband feel strongly that the details should be passed on to their grandchildren… all of whom were born after Ben's death and will never feel his love or giggle at his jokes.

Some of the proceeds of this book will be donated to Médecins Sans Frontières who believe that all people have the right to medical care regardless of race, religion, creed or political affiliation.
