Overview
-

Irish Republicanism, like its bloodthirsty Loyalist equivalent, bred and nurtured men of evil; psychopathic men and women who killed without compunction or thought; men and women who thought nothing of robbing innocents of their lives, uncaring of the devastation their actions would inflict on wives and children and parents alike. Yet at the same time, some complain about a ‘shoot-to-kill’ policy, ignoring civil rights and the so-called rule of law. These same concepts were conveniently overlooked by the terrorists of the IRA/INLA and the rest. One is constantly in conflict with the armchair IRA supporters of modern Irish Republicanism who talk of ‘oppression’ and ‘the struggle for freedom.’ But rest assured that whilst there is breath in this author's body, the battle to prevent Gerry Adams and the rest from re-writing history to suit their devious ends will never cease. This book picks up from where Volume 1 left off and describes and analyses the major incidents and stories from the Troubles between the years 1988 and 1990, as Operation Banner continued and Irish Republicanism and Northern Irish Loyalism continued to make the country into a bloody battlefield, where, quite literally, no-one was safe and where violence touched virtually every household in Ulster.

About The Author
-

Ken Wharton is 59 and is resident now in Australia with his partner Helen. Father of seven and grandfather to three with a fourth pending, he is a skydiver and former football referee. He is also a former soldier and now author of three oral histories on the Northern Ireland troubles. He writes from the perspective of the British soldier as he seeks to put across their story of a conflict, largely forgotten by both Government and public, which claimed the lives of around 1300 military lives. / He has only been writing since 2007 but is planning a further oral history of the troubles, a book on the Australians in Vietnam and a childrens' science fiction book over the next year or two. / There is a clamour from veterans of the Northern Ireland conflict to tell their story and ensure that the truth comes out and in Ken Wharton they have found a conduit for those stories and a man they can trust to ensure that the truth is finally told about the conflict which raged not only a short 30 minute flight from home but also on our own doorsteps.
