4.0 out of 5 stars an insight into a dark period in irish history, 16 Jan 2012
This review is from: Blanketmen: An Untold Story of the H-block Hunger Strike (Paperback)
first of all i would say that richard o`rawe has made a very brave decision to tell the truth about a a period of time that still remains a republican cornerstone in the recent troubles in ulster. to have the courage to write this book and take on sinn fein and other former comrades while still living in west belfast must have been a really hard decision to make and he deserves the highest credit for doing so.
having read his follow up book AFTERLIVES and reading how he has been vindicated by former blanketmen in the h blocks during the same period as blanketmen covers i have no doubt that this book is the real truth about what happened during the second hunger strike and how the last five hunger strikers died for nothing else but for the five that went before them and the rise of sinn fein in politics in ulster.
the recent disclosure of offical goverment papers has also lent great weight to o`rawes book and as a loyalist from west belfast who lived through this period i know what personnal courage it must have taken him to write this book and to let the world know the real truth about these brave mens death
