Riassunto: In this book, defence specialist and war correspondent Mark Urban explores covert operations against the IRA from the mid-1970s to the Loughgall shooting in 1987. Drawing on interviews with people who have served at the heart of intelligence and special operations in Ulster, as well as with members of paramilitary groups, this book examines the roles of the army, the police and special branch, as well as both MI5 and MI6. The book also looks at the shoot to kill allegations, and records members of the security forces describing the deliberate deception of the press and courts in Ulster. The author also reveals many details including the events which lead up to the killing of eight IRA members in May 1987 in the village of Loughgall.
L'autore: Mark Urban is the Diplomatic Editor of the BBC's Newsnight and was formerly Defence Correspondent for the Independent. He is the author of several books, including Big Boys' Rules: The SAS and the Secret Struggle Against the IRA, The Men Who Broke Napoleon's Codes and Rifles: Six Years with Wellington's Legendary Sharpshooters. His Generals: Ten British Commanders Who Shaped the World was described by Tim Collins as 'entertaining, informative and insightful', and by Allan Mallinson as 'one of the most intelligent books on the British Army I have ever read'. Fusiliers: How the British Army Lost America But Learned to Fight was described by Simon Sebag Montefiore as 'a vivid, gritty, poignant and well-researched charge-by-charge, barrage-by-barrage march of one regiment of Redcoats through the battles of the American War of Independence.'
