Brilliant exposé of a government's murder of hundreds of its own citizens. I believe even IRA and Sinn Féin members (who knew there was collusion) are shocked about the extent of British involvement with the loyalist death squads. They killed random, uninvolved Catholics to terrorise the nationalist population.
The book also shows the Dublin media for what they were: cowards. Irish journalists (with very few exceptions) never made any attempt to investigate this story, and that has to be the most shameful dereliction of professional duty in recent memory. Although, when Ireland was a virtual theocracy they said nothing,,,, when Bertie Ahern and Mary Harney were destroying the economy they said nothing. Our media are a disgrace to themselves and their families.

Even though I am well aware of the history of collusion, reading this book forced me to draw breath and recall just how subversive, murderous and immoral was the British state and its cheer leaders in unionism and its apologists in the media. Anne Cadwallader is a good writer, forensic in her approach. Like her last book, Holy Cross, she cuts through the propaganda, the excuses, the pretexts, and lays bare the incontrovertible evidence of the British state's involvement in murdering and in condoning the murders of its own citizens.

As someone who lived in South Armagh through this period and later worked in the media, I've been waiting for a book like this to have the courage and integrity to make public specific documentation confirming the collusion that we knew at the time was endemic, but could not substantiate. I have no doubt investigations by the same team into events in other areas and times of the Conflict would produce similar results. It is a difficult read, both in the enormity of the history it recounts and in the abundance of factual references that punctuate the narrative- but necessarily so. No society can move forward without establishing truth and working for justice. I am saddened that some people interpret this factual and remarkably unemotional work as 'opinion.' It should be included in any curriculum of the history of the Conflict.

Riveting. Clearly a tremendous amount of research has gone into this book. It reveals a very dark side to our history that has yet to be properly address by the authorities - and I suspect never will be.

This book covers a period I remember well and lived through. The deaths of several friends are covered and you have to keep an objective mind when reading it. It is an excellent bit of research but what will the British government do about it. Nothing? I recommend this book to anyone who lived through the "troubles" and anyone who really wants to know the truth.
