Review

Ken Whartons remarkable work rolls on, a monumental feat of history writing. --Patrick Bishop, bestselling author of Bomber Boys and 3 Para

The spirit of honour, brotherhood, superlative soldiering and true grit lives on in Ken Whartons new volume about The Troubles. Read it lest we forget those who made the ultimate sacrifice, fighting the scourge of terrorism across the water. Damien Lewis, bestselling author of Zero 6 Bravo and Firestrike 7/9 Ken Wharton captures the authentic voice of the British soldier at the height of what is generally known as the Irish Troubles but was in fact a war ... A master storyteller, he produces a rich and magnificent tapestry. Packed with new information and telling detail, Wasted Years is not just a gripping narrative but also an important contribution to military and Irish history. --Toby Harnden, bestselling author of Bandit Country: The IRA and South Armagh and Dead Men Risen: The Welsh Guards & the Defining Story of Britains War in Afghanistan

Nobody does Northern Ireland like Ken and nobody tries harder to tell the stories of the men that soldiered and died, policed and patrolled, cried and bled, or lived and wept on the Emerald Isle than he. Steven McLaughlin, bestselling author of Squaddie A powerful testament to the plain soldier of the British Army. That hero speaks out in these pages. He and she held the line during the dark years. Their victory, their courage and their humanity remind us that in human affairs, yes, sometimes the good guys really do win. --Kevin Myers, bestselling author of Watching the Door: Cheating Death in Belfast in the 70s
