Product Description

From the Author

In my first book 'The Nemesis File', my story was taken down by a ghost writer. Consequently, some statements are incorrect and I shall be writing about these mis-quotes and downright lies in fact, in my next book 'Nemesis Continued', which is part of a trilogy. This will be just as controversial, if not MORE so. I shall be writing about events that I never got around to in the first book and I will also be adding some horrific tales from soldiers, from all around the world, who wrote to me, in empathy, after reading 'The Nemesis File'.

My next book, 'Nemesis Continued', will be finished very soon, so look out for it, or even better still....Order it upfront. (To let you into a secret, my life has been turned around from the most awful nightmare, to one of optimism and great happiness. Read all about it! Also this book will help the families and wives/partners of the soldiers who have come out after fighting for their country, only to find they are totally inept at being a civilian, to the degree that they can not fit in with their own friends or loved ones!)

Format: Paperback
I already reviewed this product in it's previous incarnation (that review is only attached to the previous issue), and it was uncovered by the press and the Police as a completely fraudulent work of fantasy. To save further explanation, below is a copy of my previous review, complete with a transcript of the report on the story and background of the Author, make of it what you will, and please do check up on what I've written..

The following is a copy of an investigation into the claims by the author that his story is truthful. It was reported, as can be seen, and verified by personally checking, that the man wasn't ever anywhere near being a member of the SAS. I'm putting this here for consideration by people who may be tempted to purchase this book believing it to be history, and not fiction...

A flurry of activity. On Thursday (01/08/96) Paul Bruce, the author of The Nemesis File was detained at 5:45am at his home in Weston-super-Mare, by officers of the RUC. A copy of his manuscript containing a new chapter, which the publisher claimed would substantiate his claims, was also seized. The Nemesis File was a best selling book billed as a true story of an SAS squad that had executed about 30 men in Northern Ireland, of which Bruce had claimed to be a member. Defence sources had always ridiculed the claims, and even Sinn Fein described them as "totally outlandish". Paul Bruce was flown to Northern Ireland and questioned by the RUC under the Prevention of Terrorism Act, and a day of claims and statements followed. On Friday (02/08/96) the RUC issued a statement. The book was a "work of fiction". Paul Inman, who used the pen name Paul Bruce, had never worked for the SAS. The closest he had got was working for several months in Ulster as a army vehicle mechanic.

Format: Paperback
Roger Morris has already helpfully referenced the newspaper accounts dealing with the exposure of 'Paul Bruce' as a Walter Mitty fantasist. And while there are more than a few murky stories about the Northern Irish 'troubles' (the Finucane killing, the FRU, 'collusion' etc), this 'memoir' of a supposed assassination squad working in NI in 1971-1972 is utterly fraudulent and the fact that John Blake has republished it is for me a source of complete amazement.

Any readers with military experience will spot the obvious howlers in this book (such as the fact that neither 'Bruce' or any of this three comrades - 'Don', 'JR' and 'Bennie' - know how to do a six-figure grid reference from a map). This supposedly elite and covert death squad have a code name ('Nemesis') known by every squaddie and RUC officer in the Province, have two local farmers who act as grave-diggers for their victims, and spend their off-duty time either playing football with local kids, or in the pub, or on the pull. If they were real, their slack operational security will have got them abducted and killed by the PIRA. Their behaviour (as related by 'Bruce') makes that of Robert Nairac look cautious.

For those with any doubts, ask yourself why Sinn Fein (not normally renowned for giving the British Army - and especially 22SAS - the benefit of the doubt) described 'The Nemesis File' as 'outlandish'. Ask yourself why human rights groups such as the British-Irish Rights Watch and the Finucane Centre aren't demanding an investigation into these 'revelations'.

The review of B. Smith asks -- "Do people realise how damaging this book is to the credibility of all the Servicemen who served during the troubled period from 1969 to 1994?"

I ask if Amazon realises that the inclusion of this book in an emailed newsletter urging me to buy it does to its credibility.

The system forces reviewers to award at least one star, but the one I award here is intended to signify <b>minus 5 stars</b>.

Even the author has admitted this is complete fiction as detailed in other reviews.
A disgrace that this was ever labelled non fiction and wasted RUC time having to investigate it.

Oh for Christ sake. I bought this via my Kindle as a recommendation - It said true story and I trusted Amazon not to sell me something that was in fact the rambling fantasies of a nutter. I only started looking into this book when the 'Author' (I use the term loosely) started to talk about how many women he had slept with and how he was falling for them all the time. Needless to say I have deleted the book from my library and did not finish it.

It is difficult to understand why the author wrote this book. It is even more difficult to understand why it is still published. It is not even a good read. Whatever I paid for it was too much.

Format: Paperback
It is surprising that this poorly -written "memoir" hasn't been transferred to the "fiction" section. Since 1996, this book was discredited by the RUC and the author himself.This remains the only "SAS" book where the soldier did not have to undertake Selection in the normal manner, and basically operated in a "shoot to kill" scenario without trial. Readers should remember that even the Gibraltar shootings were dealt with in an inquest, along with many others (unlike this so-called "SAS" soldier). Pity there's no "no stars" section.
