「年度最佳政治類選書。」─BBC新聞記者Andrew Marr
「最強而有力的紀實報導,重新陳述震驚世界的英國脫歐事件。」─《英國衛報》

《星期日泰晤士報》主編及作家Tim Shipman憑藉職務的優勢,對英國脫歐事件的各方重要角色深入採訪,收錄包括英國外交及國協事務大臣鮑里斯‧強森、英國國會議員麥可‧戈夫、英國國會議員喬治‧奧斯本、歐洲議會議員奈傑‧法拉吉、Vote Leave總監多明尼克‧卡明斯等核心人物的表態,以客觀精準的文筆分析脫歐派及留歐派各方的真實動機,進而了解英國脫歐的驚人真相。這是第一本唯一完整講述英國為何及如何脫歐世界的書籍,而脫歐後的決策,又如何拖垮前英國首相卡麥隆的政治生涯。 

A superb work of storytelling and reporting. Sets new benchmark for the writing of contemporary political history’ Andrew Sparrow, Guardian

The only book to tell the full story of how and why Britain voted to leave the EU.
Based on unrivalled access to all the key politicians and their advisors – including Boris Johnson, Michael Gove, George Osborne, Nigel Farage and Dominic Cummings, the mastermind of Vote Leave – Tim Shipman has written a political history that reads like a thriller, and offers a gripping, day-by-day account of what really happened behind-the-scenes in Downing Street, both Leave campaigns, the Labour Party, Ukip and Britain Stronger in Europe.

Shipman gives his readers a ringside seat on how decisions were made, mistakes justified and betrayals perpetrated. Filled with stories, anecdotes and juicy leaks the book does not seek to address the rights and wrongs of Brexit but to explore how and why David Cameron chose to take the biggest political gamble of his life and explain why he lost.

This is a story of calculation, attempted coups, individuals torn between principles and loyalty. All the events are here – from David Cameron’s pledge to hold a referendum, through to the campaign itself, his resignation as prime minister, the betrayals and rivalries that occurred during the race to find his successor to the arrival of Theresa May in Downing Street as Britain’s second female prime minister.

All Out War is a book about leaders and their closest aides, the decisions they make and how and why they make them, as well as how they feel when they turn out to be wrong. It is about men who make decisions that are intellectually consistent and – by their own measure – morally sound that are simultaneously disastrous for themselves and those closest to them. It is about how doing what you know has worked before doesn’t always work again. Most of all it is about asking the question: how far are you prepared to go to win?
