9781847170750: Insider: Gerry Bradley's Life in the IRA

Bradley speaks out for the first time - without permission from the IRA. The IRA was Gerry Bradley's life. His sole interest was in 'ops' - carrying out on-the-ground war. Inspired, initially, to defend his home place against Loyalist threats, he became one of the most senior operators in Belfast IRA. When things turned political, there seemed to be no place for his kind of activism. This title presents the inside story by a senior IRA man.

Review:

'raw and authentic' -- Irish Independent 'Gerry Bradley's story deserves to be told, if only as a cautionary tale' -- Irish Independent 'a riveting read' -- Sunday Times 'Bradley may have achieved nothing in his war, but he and Feeney have turned a wasted life into a rattling good read.' -- Sunday Times '280 pages of gripping revelations' -- North Belfast News 'not comfortable reading but it is important for what understanding it provides ... authentic' -- Books Ireland 'gives a fascinating, if chilling, account of many of the major events of the period' -- Books Ireland
