1.0 out of 5 stars lost chance
As an avid reader of history, especially about Ulster, i couldn't wait to read this book when i heard it was being published. There are plenty of reasons why they called the Troubles in Ulster...The Dirty War..., and the part this book sets out to tell, is still one surrounded in so much secrecy and controversy, around an area of Ulster that is almost impossible to...

5.0 out of 5 stars a very interesting but shocking read, 5 Nov 2013
This review is from: Lethal Allies: British Collusion in Ireland (Paperback)
A very interesting but shocking read. Author sets out clear and hard evidence of collusion between the security forces (RUC/UDR) and Loyalist terrorist groups in the murders of over 100 innocent Catholics, all of whom were not connected in any way to the republican movement. An essential read for anyone who's interested in the troubles and history of Northern Ireland.

5.0 out of 5 stars Planned callous murder by British Government, 29 Oct 2013

This review is from: Lethal Allies: British Collusion in Ireland (Paperback)
I have read this book from cover to cover, and it has left me severely traumatised. 120 innocent people MURDERED by serving members of the RUC, those gallant holders of the military George Cross. Also assisting and perpetrating the murder of the innocents, the infamous UDR (ulster defence regiment) the regiment held in high regard by the right honourable Jeffrey Donaldson MP. The British government knew the UDR had been heavily infiltrated by loyalist paramilitaries, and done nothing about it. They did in fact use it to their advantage supplying intelligence and weapons to have people murdered at their direction and discretion. This book is a compelling read. The book and author does state that not ALL UDR/RUC were complicate, but certainly to many were involved to deem it"a few bad apples" The orchard is contaminated.

This review is from: Lethal Allies: British Collusion in Ireland (Paperback)
Was a bit sceptical at first that there would be anything that was'nt already known as most people no there was state collusion that went to the top of government but maybe some day we might get the whole story not only in the border counties but in all the occupied counties as it was widespread through the north in general as the RUC towards the end of the conflict were FORCED to visit thousands of households across the north to inform republicans and nationalists that there personal details from security files had ended up in the hands of loyalists paramilitaries.but this book is by far the most detailed so far into state collusion

5.0 out of 5 stars Depressing yet compelling, 26 Mar 2014

This review is from: Lethal Allies: British Collusion in Ireland (Paperback)
This book was a very tough read. It confirms the collusion that was long suspected by the Catholic community. That the British state allowed psychopaths to slaughter innocent Catholics and despite evidence to prosecute them at the time did nothing.... if there ever was evidence that Britain was acting as a colonial power controlling N. Ireland by terror in this way as a colony look no further than this book. Surely if Irish Catholics were seen as full British citizens these murder gangs would not have been allowed to operate - would the same methods have been used again citizens in Great Britain: doubtful. Seems that the bulk of the UDR and a large element of serving RUC officers were also acting members of the UVF! The scale of the collusion, seemed to even spread into the offices of the DPP who refused to prosecute, is on a massive scale. Today I have full confidence in the new police force, the PSNI and the UDR and RIR on the streets is past history. I don't believe such murder gangs would be able to operate as freely as they did during the 70s-80s. Gang members were in the UVF and Orange Order. It seems that the anti-Catholic and anti-Irish ethos of the Orange Order was allowed to dictate Unionist & Loyalist thinking at the time. Some of the gangs victims were ex-Britsh army servicemen but they still deserved to die since they were Catholic! After reading this book and seeing the Orange Order of 2014 still orchestrating anti-Catholic and anti-Irish sentiment via the Loyalist flag protests I sometimes wonder... even as the British army said at the time, these guys are loyal to no-one and no country but to themselves and their own organisations and areas where they live. How to solve this issue long term? I am not sure that repartition would work but one things thats sure is that the Orange/Loyalist Ulster and N.Ireland of old is dead, gone and never coming back. Lets hope that further years of peace will see the numbers of the already dying Orange order further dwindle. I also pray that Unionist politicians will come to realise the dangers of the recently failed Haass talks: sooner or later a deal on the pastm flags and parity of esteem for all cultures present in N.Ireland will have to be done.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very worth while read for anyone interested in Irish/British affairs. It has been well researched and contains absolute proof that members of state forces in the north of Ireland have been involved in killings and other sinister activity.

I really enjoyed this book. It revealed the true work of the RUC and UDR who ruined many peoples lives and how all the evidence was 'BRUSHED UNDER THE CARPET'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bloody Truth, 21 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This insight into how countless and pointless killings were carried out, were shocking to read and accept. But a mere Google search and it gets confirmed. Anne's " no holds barred" approach to writing this novel, is at the very least. A fitting tribute to those who were murdered and a closure, for those wanting the truth.
