Books A-J Anne Cadwallader, Lethal Allies: British Collusion in Ireland $24.95
Lethal Allies: British Collusion in Ireland. Farmers, shopkeepers, and businessmen were slaughtered in a bloody decade of bombings and shootings in the North Irish counties of Tyrone and Armagh in the 1970s. For years there were claims that loyalists were helped and guided by members of the RUC and Ulster Defence Regiment. But, until now, there was no proof. Drawing on 15 years of research, and using forensic and ballistic information never before published, this book includes official documents showing that the highest in the land knew of the collusion, and names those whose fingers were on the triggers and detonators. It draws on previously unpublished reports written by the PSNI's own Historical Enquiries Team. It also includes heartbreaking interviews with the bereaved families whose lives were shattered by this cold and calculated campaign.
