The third part of the trilogy documenting modern-day Northern Ireland, by the author of Provos and Loyalists

In the final part of his trilogy exploring ‘The Troubles' in Northern Ireland, Peter Taylor talks to undercover agents of the British state and reveals for the first time the hidden secrets of the war they waged against the IRA for thirty years.

PROVOS and LOYALISTS told the story of the conflict from the point of view of the Republicans and Loyalists; now the story, with all its tragic twists and turns, is told from the British perspective. For the first time, undercover soldiers, Special Branch officers and a top MI6 agent step out of the shadows and, along with the Whitehall mandarins who helped shape policy from Westminster, tell their stories.

*PRAISE FOR PETER TAYLOR*

‘Only a journalist of Peter Taylor’s standing could have persuaded people from all sides in the conflict to cooperate in such a manner. The result was a first-rate piece of journalism. It was also first-rate history’ Guardian

MEDIA REVIEWS

PRAISE FOR PETER TAYLOR: Peter Taylor should be ranked alongside David Attenborough in any panoply of TV grandees … To report on the region since 1972 and have all sides still talking to you with trust and respect is quite an achievement. As perhaps is the fact that he is still breathing - The Times

Taylor has built a justified reputation as by far the most knowledgeable British – or Irish – television reporter on Northern Irish affairs - Irish Times

A reporter who can face human horror and help us comprehend it - Radio Times
