'A fine book, well-written and expertly researched. It offers a clear insight into a period of Irish history endangered of being forgotten.' -- The Western People

'In telling the full story for the first time, former soldier, Declan Power does the brave men of A Company a great service' --John Moran, The Irish Times

'Siege At Jadotville lifts the lid on one of the most controversial episodes in Ireland's UN service.' --Sunday World

'The book is a welcome addition to the small number of books about the Congo operation and should be required reading for the Army.' --Don Lavery, The Irish Independent

Reseña del editor:

The inspiration for the hit film starring Jamie Dornan!

Siege at Jadotville is Declan Power's acclaimed book on the men of A Company, 35th Battalion of the Defence Forces, who were deployed to protect the inhabitants of the village of Jadotville in the Congo in 1961.

Days after their deployment, A Company found themselves out-numbered and engaged in a pitched battle with native Congolese soldiers led by white mercenary officers. In addition to the overwhelming odds, A Company also had to contend with being strafed by a jet with no anti-aircraft defences to defend themselves.

Appeals for re-supply from UN forces went unheard. A number of attempts by Irish troops deployed in the vicinity failed. After firing their last round of ammunition and engaging in hand-to-hand-combat, Comdt Patrick Quinlan decided against the needless death of his men and ordered them to surrender.
