Product description

Review

In this excellent and wide-ranging selection of first-hand accounts from the British Army in Northern Ireland, Ken Wharton has assembled testimonies from men of all ranks that are invariably informative, sometimes humorous and often deeply moving. A fitting tribute to the British soldier in a campaign that lasted nearly three decades. --Adrian Gilbert, author of POW: Allied Prisoners in Europe 1939-1945; (The Sunday Times Best Military Books 2006)

A compelling story, told in the refreshingly simple prose of a soldier-scribe. This is the tale of that other war on terror - one fought over several, bloody decades, and largely in the shadows. Lest we forget. --Damien Lewis, bestselling author of Operation Certain Death and & Bloody Heroes.

Here at last is the authentic voice of the veterans of a gruelling and thankless campaign. Powerful, revealing and moving. --Patrick Bishop, bestselling author of 3 Para and Bomber Boys.

A testament to the experiences of the British Army during those troubled years. A splendid book. --Britain at War Magazine

... a vivid and unforgettable record. --Best of British Magazine

...should be required reading at every level of military training, from basic up to and including staff college; if only to educate our future soldiers and officers and to refresh the memories of those who may need reminding of this bloody and tragic time, and not least, to warn that this may not all be in the past. The quote 'that those who do not learn from History are doomed to repeat it' is as true today as ever was. --Army Rumour Service website review

A testament to the experiences of the British Army during those troubled years. A splendid book. --Britain at War Magazine
