"Anyone stunned via the identify of the publication may still commit it slow to this notable narrative and ask themselves on the finish no matter if it exaggerates or honestly underestimates what relatively happened." — Paul Foot.

In April 2003, the Stevens record supplied the 1st reputable acknowledgement of collusion among loyalist armed teams and British defense forces within the murders of nationalists in Northern Ireland.Yet, as this ebook demonstrates, such collusion and linked conspiracies were a important function of the British reaction to the clash in eire for greater than thirty years. That reaction, argues Paul Larkin, quantities to a Holy conflict, or Jihad, within the identify of Protestantism and the British monarchy. That conflict has been swathed in secrecy and denial, safe by way of notions of 'national protection' that pervade each nook of the criminal procedure and the political institution - a truly British Jihad.

Award profitable investigative journalist Paul Larkin made the 1st of many motion pictures for highlight - BBC Northern Ireland's present affairs programme - in February 1989. It was once concerning the homicide of Pat Finucane. due to the fact that then Larkin has lined different debatable killings, RUC cover-ups, the burgeoning illicit medicinal drugs exchange, the function of informers and brokers, and the infamous Portadown established Yatpack'. He went directly to produce a unique research into the Dublin/Monaghan bombings for RTE.

The study for those movies was once the uncooked fabric for this booklet. development on his past investigations, Larkin offers a close and revealing account of many elements of Britain's 'dirty war'.
He offers a special perception into the hazards and political pressures dealing with reporters who dare to enquire the unsavoury relationships among the intelligence organisations, politicians, the police, the British military and loyalism.
