Not a work of scholarship but an interesting insight into a side of the "Troubles" that is seldom aired

A very interesting background to a complex and bizarre character. It also painted a very good picture of life for the early Colonial settlers in Africa and how much benefit they brought to the country. It is a pity that most of the stories of that time are taken up with the hedonistic life of a few rich, aimless aristocrats. This book goes some way to providing a balance.

A compact and very useful aid to Yachtsmen sailing in British and N. European waters: I would be lost (or aground) without it!

4.0 out of 5 stars All in all a fine piece of authorship only spoiled, 6 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very comprehensive exposé of what remains a shameful part of Irish (and British Army) history. The author included rather a lot of "padding" and one felt that this was more to enhance his own reputation as an author rather than to add to the still-incomplete story of what happened to Rober Nairac than was already known. This said, the background on Ampleforth, Irish History, the Oxford colleges and the admittedly-naive development of the British Army's approach in the early part of the recent "Troubles" was all interesting, if rather long. All in all a fine piece of authorship only spoiled, for me, by the author's consistent misuse of the noun 'practice' when the verb 'practise' was required (e.g. 'practicing' rather than 'practising' throughout.) To claim the use of 'an American spellchecker' would be a paltry excuse in my view.
