Toby Harnden is Washington bureau chief of The Sunday Times of London. A dual American and British citizen, he has reported across the world. He has previously working in the United States for the Daily Telegraph, Sunday Telegraph and Mail Online. His bestseller Dead Men Risen: The Welsh Guards & the Defining Story of Britain’s War in Afghanistan was the 'unanimous and almost spontaneous' winner of the 2012 Orwell Prize, Britain's most prestigious award for political writing. The judges said it was 'a great achievement…consistently intelligent' that 'challenges every citizen of this country to examine exactly what we’re asking soldiers to do in Afghanistan'. The American author Bing West hailed it as 'extraordinary in its research, scope, empathy and raw emotive power'. Toby also wrote the critically-acclaimed Bandit Country: The IRA & South Armagh.
