British Army in Northern Irelandby Michael Dewar
In 1969, British soldiers were ordered into the streets of riot-torn Belfast, their task to form a disciplined human buffer between two communities at war, inspired by centuries-old fear and hatred. This compelling study of military intervention in civil affairs is told with the authority of firsthand experience. From tactics, methods, and equipment used to meet the ever-changing challenge from the IRA, to trying to win the hearts and minds of the people, this riveting account covers all the bases. 304 pages, 115 b/w illus., 6 1/4 X 9 1/4.
