Surprisingly hopeful when you get past the horror,

This review is from: Killing Rage (Paperback)
Eamon Collins' autobiography was the end of him, and no wonder the IRA was not pleased by this exposure of the falsity of the romantic idea of the IRA volunteer. Not that the British or RUC come out any better.
I know no better book of how a young Idealist gets to the stage of planning the murders of his co workers and winds up seemingly in over his head. The second part is however even better, describing his climb out of this pit and to rebuild his life and self respect. Most remarkeable is his decision to return to Ireland, an obvious hazard to his life and to attempt to show another way out of the troubles. His very own calvary, ending in death by beating in 1999.
