This review is from: Nothing But an Unfinished Song: Bobby Sands, the Irish Hunger Striker Who Ignited a Generation (Hardcover)
This book is a remarkable achievement. With great skill and sensitivity the author pieces together the character and politics of the most famous IRA fighter of modern times. The book is thoroughly researched and a great accomplishment considering that most of Bobby Sands political development and struggles took place behind bars in the notorious H-Blocks of Long Kesh. It is a hard book to put down but at times I had to, as the author takes you right inside the most traumatic of episodes associated with the long years of protest, culminating in hunger strike and death. Learn something new on every one of the four hundred pages. No clichés here. Just rock solid research.
