This book is going to be viewed, depending on your opinion of the situation in Northern Ireland. This would be a mistake, This not only a history of the force but that of Ireland. It starts from the force in the whole of ireland thru the setting up of the state of N.I. and the changes of the police to those events. It gives the inside views of the people involved. It pulls no punches and makes admissions not widely heard. Reading this book will give a better insight into the problems of northern ireland and the difficulties of the police, as a target for all sides. I found impossible to put down and have a high respect for the people who have the guts and courage to wear the uniform. Unlike other police forces, once they take that choice, their lives and those around them are changed forever and there is no turning back.
Are you that Brave?
