South Armagh was first described as Bandit Country by Merlyn Rees when he was Northern Ireland's Secretary of State, and for nearly three decades it has been the most dangerous posting in the world for soldiers. Toby Harnden has stripped away the myth and propaganda associated with South Armagh to produce one of the most compelling and important books of the subject. Drawing on secret documents and interviews in South Armagh's recent history, he tells the inside story of how the IRA came close to bringing the British state to its knees. For the first time, the identities of the men behind the South Quay and Manchester bombings are revealed. Packed with new information, Bandit Country penetrates the IRA and the security forces in South Armagh.Reseña del editor:
To the army, South Armagh is "Bandit Country", 200 square miles of the most hostile terrain in Northern Ireland which has claimed the lives of 115 soldiers since 1969. The author has interviewed members of the army, MI5, RUC and IRA to form a picture of the delicate balance of tensions in the area.
