Voices from the British Army in Northern Ireland 1969-1998

£9.99

Product description

A Long Long War: Voices from the British Army in Northern Ireland 1969-1998
Written & compiled by Ken M Wharton
Helion & Company Limited, Solihull, 2008. Reprinted 2008, 2009. This paperback reprint 2010.
Paperback; 145 x 230 mm; 523 pages. Illustrations within text. No dust jacket.
The book is in good condition. The binding is generally sound though the book is distorted, and there is cracking along the gutters pages 194/195 and 290/291. Slight wear to the spine and covers.
“This is the story of the Troubles in Northern Ireland told from the perspective of the British soldiers who served there between 1969 and 1998. This was a war against terrorists who knew no mercy or compassion; a war involving sectarian hatred and violent death. Over 1,000 British lives were lost in a place just 30 minutes flying time away from the mainland. The British Army was sent into Northern Ireland on August 14, 1969 by the Wilson government as law and order had broken down and the population (mainly Catholics) and property were at grave risk. Between then and 1998 some 300,000 British troops served in Northern Ireland. This is their story - in their own words - from first to last…. The author has also conducted a great deal of original research to produce a roll of honour for all service personnel killed in Northern Ireland. A major contribution to research, the list differs from its 'official' MoD counterpart to a surprising degree…. Receiving a remarkable amount of co-operation from Northern Ireland veterans eager to tell their story, the author has compiled a vivid and unforgettable record. Their experiences - sad and poignant, fearful and violent, courageous in the face of adversity, even downright hilarious - make for compelling reading.”
