Review: Behind the Mask

User Review  - Steven Yenzer - Goodreads

I came to this book knowing very little about the IRA and the Irish independence movement. It's a great introduction and is as fast-paced and enthralling as any novel. I really enjoyed the interviews and quotes throughout; it was great to hear the stories told from folks who experienced it. Read full review
