Times of Troubles: Britain's War in Northern Ireland

Overview

"Bloody Sunday" is one of the iconic moments in British and Irish history, but what were the experiences of the soldiers in Ulster, many of them Scottish, and how did the wider events of the Troubles figure in their minds? Wood and Sanders give voice to these soldiers with many new documents, interviews, and diary entries now released to the public domain. Their analysis is a timely reinterpretation of events which still echo in the political consciousness of Scotland, Ireland, Wales, and England.
