I always thought I knew what 'the Troubles' were all about, but this book has made it very clear that I didn't. Very well told and chillingly shows how it is going to take a long time before it is either solved or people are willing to let the past go, admit mistakes were made, and try to get on with each other. Not holding my breath; as with any feud while people are retaliating for harms done to them, who is going to be the first to Stop?
An easy to follow account of the horrific events in Northern Ireland, and the rocky road to peace. A must read for anyone who has a desire to learn about this. Well balanced and fair, the authors don't favour one side over the other. As a recent visitor to Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, it helped me understand better what happened and why.
