However, I suspect I know a bit more about this topic than the first reviewer, having read fairly deeply on thehistory of Ireland. Iwonder, is he equally angry about the pro-British Unionidt paramilitaries who committed crimes just as heinous as the Provos (or for that matter, the British army--Bloody Sunday, the pitchfork murdet s by Lt. Snowball.), led by Iain Paisley ?

the author simply glorifies the terrorists of the IRA and the anarchy and violence that they espouse.
