Summary
When British troops first deployed to Northern Ireland in 1969, to halt the threat of a new rising force - the Provisional Irish Republican Army - they could not have known that the longest campaign in the British Army's history was beginning. For thirty years, Britain's Special Forces waged a ferocious, secretive struggle against a ruthless and implacable enemy. Henry Gow offers a unique insight into nearly every major military action and operation in the Province, having served seven tours with the Parachute Regiment, followed by passing selection for 14 Intelligence Company then completing six years with the SAS anti-terrorism team, before joining the Royal Ulster Constabulary, receiving two commendations for bravery during his six-year service
