Overview

In March 1991, Hugh Callaghan and the other men known as "the Birmingham Six" were released from custody after spending sixteen years in British jails as the result of an appalling miscarriage of justice. Cruel Fate is Callaghan's personal account of his life, the strange circumstances that saw him arrested and charged as an IRA bomber after the Birmingham pub massacres of November 1974, and his survival through the years spent in various prisons.

When first published in Ireland, the book was hailed as a triumph of the human spirit. Now available in America for the first time, this edition includes a new epilogue in which Callaghan reflects on his experiences since regaining his freedom.
