5.0 out of 5 stars A compelling read., 21 Sept. 2014
The seventh of Ken's books in his crusade to ensure that those who walked the streets and countryside of Northern Ireland are not forgotten.The book pulls no punches and demonstrates why Ken has become one of the best authors committed to telling the story of Britain's forgotten war across the water.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having read Steven's excellent book Squaddie.I bought Clubland UK on impluse.It did not let me down,I was captivated from the start,from his broken family life to bedsit land.It's a book, that one more page ,turns into chapters.It grabs your emotions ,as you follow Steven's roller - coaster life.If you want to find out , what life on the doors of Blackpool was like , then I recommend this book .

Ken Wharton is once more the voice of soldiers,from the forgotten war in Northern Ireland.His sixth book on the 'The Troubles', takes you on a journey through three years of mindless violence and mayham, with nobody safe from the clutches of death.Without Kens books on 'The Troubles' they would be long forgotten.And those that served in Northern Ireland, would truly have WASTED YEARS AND WASTED LIVES

5.0 out of 5 stars The war that never was, 1 July 2012
"SIR THEY'RE TAKING THE KIDS INDOORS".I was 8 years old in 1973 and unlike the 8 year olds of today with access to the internet,I had no idea how those six words could strike fear into grown men.After a recent visit to Belfast,and reading this book I now fully understand.
Ken has once again produced another compelling read with meticoulous research and unbaised accounts.You are taken back into a time of mindless killings,indiscriminate bombings and endless games of tit-for-tat.That was battleground,Northern Ireland and THE WAR THAT NEVER WAS.

This is the best of Ken's books about Northern Ireland.It's a fascinating read,one you find hard to put down,one more page becomes twenty or more.If you never walked the streets of Northern Ireland,this is the book for you,because by the time you have finished,you will feel like you have.Keep up the good work Ken
