Description

1969 was a year of rising tension, violence and change for the people of Northern Ireland. Rioting in Derry's Bogside led to the deployment of British troops and a short-lived and uneasy truce. The British Army soon found itself engaged in an undercover war against the Provisional IRA, which was to last for more than 20 years. In this book, the author of "The Shankill Butchers" examines the roles played by the Provisional IRA, the State forces, the Irish Government and the British Army during this troubled period. He sets out to unravel the mystery of a conflict involving informers, agents and double agents, and offers evidence of the way in which the terrorists and the intelligence agencies target, undermine and penetrate each other's ranks.
