Reviews

We Are Bellingcat is an account of real events yet reads like a thriller, with the truth waiting to be discovered online * New Statesman *
A fascinating book . . . The lesson of this deeply impressive book is that, despite the noise, the propaganda and the lies, the truth is everywhere. You just have to know how to look for it * Spectator *
The gripping story of how Eliot Higgins and Bellingcat used innovative investigation techniques to expose some of the gravest state crimes of our era -- Bill Browder, bestselling author of 'Red Notice'
Tells the story of the most innovative practitioners of open-source intelligence and online journalism in the world -- Anne Applebaum
It is impossible to exaggerate the urgency and the power of their work . . . Higgins and Bellingcat are a crucial and courageous corrective -- James O'Brien
It is strange that Eliot Higgins's We Are Bellingcat should be such an uplifting book . . . Riveting . . . It is quite a story . . . Spare, elegant . . .What will fire people through these pages, gripped, is the focused, and extraordinary, investigations that Bellingcat runs . . . Each runs as if the concluding chapter of a Holmesian whodunit, in which the scientific sleuth explains in crystalline manner his inescapable conclusions . . . Ultimately, the book consoles, reassuring readers that in a world where everyone has an opinion and objectivity feels extinct, the tools to prove and verify have never been more accessible * Telegraph *
Bellingcat has pioneered a new field of investigation that has proven key to understanding the clandestine criminal actions of Russia and other nations both at home and abroad. They have exposed numerous war crimes, human rights violations, and much more . . . If there were a Nobel Prize in uncovering war crimes, Bellingcat would receive it. No wonder authoritarian and criminal regimes hate them so -- Toomas Hendrik Ilves, former President of Estonia
John le Carre demystified the intelligence services; Higgins has demystified intelligence gathering itself . . . Higgins is one of the internet's good guys - a champion of truth in a post-truth world' * Financial Times *
The blogger who tracks Syrian rockets from his sofa * Daily Telegraph *
Taking on the Krelim from his couch ... Eliot Higgins and Bellingcat are fighting Vladimir Putin and his ilk, using little more than computers and smartphones * Foreign Policy *
'We Are Bellingcat is Higgins's gripping account of how he reinvented reporting for the internet age . . . Bellingcat's rise reveals something new about our digitally mediated times: spying is no longer the preserve of nation states - anyone with an internet connection can do it' * Observer *
