A former squaddie who himself patrolled the dangerous streets and lanes of Northern Ireland, Ken Wharton once again succeeds brilliantly in recreating what it was like for a soldier to be there in the darkest days of the Troubles. A must-read for anyone interested in knowing what really happened." Toby Harnden, author of Bandit Country: The IRA & South Armagh and Dead Men Risen: The Welsh Guards & the Defining Story of Britain's War in Afghanistan * Toby Harnden *
A crucial reminder of the sacrifices of our armed forces in Northern Ireland - even more timely with prosecutions being mooted over Bloody Sunday." Damien Lewis, bestselling author of Zero Six Bravo, Operation Certain Death, Apache Dawn * Damien Lewis *
Without Ken's voice many of these tales would be lost to the sands of time and the courageous sacrifice of these men would be forgotten; but thanks to him they won't andtheir stories will live on. All of us who have ever worn green owe Ken and the men he writesof a debt; because lest we forget it could have been us." Steven McLaughlin, bestselling author of Squaddie * Steven McLaughlin *
Another compelling insight into the British Army's long war in Northern Ireland. Deeply moving, often tragic, sometimes darkly funny, it gives a startling insight into a normally unseen side of the Troubles. Students of Irish history owe the author a huge debt of gratitude for assembling such a unique and indispensable narrative." Kevin Myers, author of Watching the Door: Cheating Death in Belfast in the 1970s * Kevin Myers *
