The widow of a soldier from Stoke-on-Trent who was killed in Iraq has vowed to fight on for her husband and other troops after today's ruling.
Debi Allbutt, whose husband Corporal Stephen Allbutt died in March 2003, said the legal action is "our only route to find out what really happened and to get justice".
When I set out to achieve what I've achieved today I set out a promise that I'd get justice and I'd stop this from happening again, and obviously today is a landmark victory ...
I suppose I've fought so long and I keep thinking that maybe I won't keep winning because my luck will run out somehow, but it's something I really believe in so I'll just keep fighting, and fighting, and fighting."
