Casements official reports on the atrocities committed against the rubber gatherers brought him fame and led to reform of the rubber trade in the Congo and the Putumayo. His involvement in the recruitment of Irish prisoners of war to fight against the British during the Great War caused him to be tried for treason and hanged in what is perhaps one of the greatest miscarriages of justice in British history, brought about in part by the leaking of passages from his shockingly homosexual Black Diaries, presented here in almost their entirety.
