From Kirkus Reviews:

An amazingly detailed and profoundly disturbing examination of the ``dirty'' covert war between Northern Ireland's paramilitary groups and British security forces. Investigative journalist Dillon focuses on the chaotic years of 196990 to describe how British security forces attempted to infiltrate and destroy the Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA). The two sides fought a deadly, no-rules war with spies, informers, assassination, misinformation, and wholesale coverup. While the IRA tried to destabilize Northern Ireland by bombing, compiling weapons, and murdering British troops, British security forces established their own ``unofficial'' hit squads to identify and murder IRA operatives. Dillon brilliantly illuminates the deadly, murky underworld of spies and informers, meticulously describing how British intelligence would arrest ``vulnerable'' IRA members and ``turn'' them with threats of imprisonment, blackmail, torture, and monetary rewards. Dillon also reveals how the IRA systematically searched out and eliminated informers within their midstusually with a bullet to the head. Dillon fully understands the devastating political and cultural implications of Northern Ireland's ``dirty'' war. He repeatedly points out that governmental counterterrorism, waged in secrecy and thus lacking accountability, ``raises serious issues for a democracy.'' He cites the brutal murders of Andrew Murray and Michael Naan, two suspected IRA members killed by British soldiers. Although dozens within the British army knew about the murders, the crime was systematically covered up for eight years. Dillon's account of the Murray/Naan murders makes for shocking and fascinating reading. The ``dirty'' war in Northern Ireland has created a diseased culture of silence, betrayal, and selective memory. Though a decade old (it was a bestseller when first published in Ireland), Dillon's book is investigative journalism at its relevant best. He's put himself in harm's way to get at the dark truth, gaining access to both British intelligence sources and the IRA. A seminal, if dated, study of Northern Ireland's nightmarish legacy of official and unofficial violence. -- Copyright ©1999, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

Review:

Long regarded as one of Northern Ireland's best-informed journalists, many of Mr. Dillon's books have until recently been unavailable to American audiences. Now, thanks to Routledge, they are receiving the audience they deserve.
The Washington Times

An amazingly detailed and profoundly disturbing examination of the 'dirty' covert war between Northern Ireland's paramilitary groups and British security forces..Dillon's book is investigative journalism at its relevant best. He's put himself in harm's way to get at the dark truth, gaining access to both British intelligence sources and the IRA.
Kirkus Reviews, March 1999

Makes Cold War duplicity a la Deighton and Le Carr seem positively endearing.... This excellent book demands the attention of anyone concerned about civil liberties in the United Kingdom.
The Guardian

Grippingly written with the pace of a thriller.
Financial Times

Descripción Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 1992. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. 1969 was a year of rising tension, violence and change for the people of Northern Ireland. Rioting in Derry s Bogside led to the deployment of British troops and a shortlived, uneasy truce. The British army soon found itself engaged in an undercover war against the Provisional IRA, which was to last for more than twenty years. In this enthralling and controversial book, Martin Dillon, author of the bestselling The Shankill Butchers, examines the roles played by the Provisional IRA, the State forces, the Irish Government and the British Army during this troubled period. He unravels the mystery of war in which informers, agents and double agents operate, revealing disturbing facts about the way in which the terrorists and the Intelligence Agencies target, undermine and penetrate each other s ranks. The Dirty War is investigative reporting at its very best, containing startling disclosures and throwing new light on previously inexplicable events. Nº de ref. de la librería AAZ9780099845201
