The best piece of investigative journalism I've read
on 16 July 2010
As with many other reviews I read this book to gain a better understanding of the conflict that has raged for so many years, both on and off our shores. After watching the documentary of the same name, I purchased the book and found it to be informative, unbiased and exceptionally well written. You can truly appreciate the ammount of research and work that Peter Taylor has put into this book and I feel that the style in which he interjects the narrative with interviews and accounts from eye witnesses, IRA Volunteers, Republican and Loyalist politicians as well as accounts from British Intelligence agencies at the time. A brilliant study and I look forward to reading the additional two books in support of this one, 'Brits' and 'Loyalists'.
