"Highly recommended read." - SharedTroubles "What Ken is creating is something historians will be using centuries from now."- The Pathfinder Magazine This is the second oral history of the Northern Ireland troubles, following on from A Long, Long War (Helion, 2008), again told from the perspective of the ordinary British soldier. This book looks deeper into the conflict, with new contributors providing revealing stories of the troubles from the back streets of the Ardoyne to the bandit country of South Armagh. In researching this subject Ken Wharton, a former soldier, is now known and trusted by those who served and they are keen for their part in Britain's forgotten war to now be made public. For the first time, he tells the stories of the 'unseen victims'; the loved ones who sat and dreaded a knock at the door from the Army telling them that their loved one had been killed on the streets of Northern Ireland. There are more first hand accounts from the Rifleman, the Private, the Guardsman, the Driver, the Sapper and the Fusilier on the street as they recall the violence, the insults and the shock of seeing a comrade dying in front of them. There is an explosive interview with a soldier who killed an IRA gunman fresh from the murder of two Royal Artillerymen. Building on the huge success of Ken's first book, this second volume will provide plenty of new material for the reader to reconsider afresh the role of Britain's soldiers in Northern Ireland and the fate that so many suffered.
