Description

Sometimes you need to remind yourself of what happened during "The Troubles" in Northern Ireland, as you are prone to forget the horrors of what people, on all sides, had to live through. Additionally, the author records various acts of sectarian massacres carried out against Protestant civilians. On a separate tangent, this book (and the Troubles themselves) has been overlooked by the newly anointed crowd of Counterinsurgency "experts" focusing their attention on southwest Asia. Drawing on secret documents and interviews in South Armagh’s recent history, he tells the inside story of how the IRA came close to bringing the British state to its knees.

And each commented on it favourably…Harnden is to be commended for striking the balance that he did. You can listen to this audiobook via the BOOKFUNNEL APP or stream it on the BOOKFUNNEL CLOUD PLAYER on a web browser on any phone or device. Regardless of one's point of view toward the cause of the conflict, it is almost unbearably sad to read about the violence wreaked upon the people of this beautiful land. South Armagh was described as "Bandit Country" by Merlyn Rees when he was Northern Ireland Secretary, and for nearly three decades it has been the most dangerous posting in the world for a British soldier.I’d first learned about the Troubles as a kid when I learned my grandpa emigrated from Ireland at 10 years old and due to the conflict didn’t want to talk about it, violence or war at all. Drawing on secret documents and interviews in South Armagh's recent history, he tells the inside story of how the IRA came close to bringing the British state to its knees. Drawing on secret documents and interviews on South Armagh’s recent history, Harnden told the inside story of how the IRA came close to bringing the British state to its knees. To republicans, it is 'God's Country', the only area in the six counties where the occupiers have successfully been resisted.

By telling the story of the IRA's activities in South Armagh, the author does an impressive job of detailing the complexity of the conflict while illustrating the stakes with gruesome accuracy.Harnden's book begins with a scenario of a diesel mix homemade bomb being assembled in a farm outbuilding in South Armagh. South Armagh was described as 'Bandit Country' by Merlyn Rees when he was Northern Ireland Secretary and for nearly three decades it has been the most dangerous posting in the world for a British soldier. Loses points for its slight - and in the light of recent conclusive official confirmation of systematic British Army-RUC-UDR-Loyalist collusion, absolutely ridiculous - bias towards 'official' viewpoints on the sources of violence and evidence of security force misconduct and injustice towards the Nationalist community.
