Nick Curtis is one of the most highly decorated British soldiers ever to serve in Northern Ireland. In this compelling and unique book he graphically portrays his experiences in the Province during the turbulent years of 1969–1976. After surviving nearly 2,000 fired rounds, Curtis's duty as a uniformed officer ended and he was awarded the Military Medal for acts of bravery in the field. But he returned to the Province to become a key figure in undercover operations, liaising closely with such figures as Captain Robert Nairac, himself a legend for his undercover work among the IRA. Hard-hitting, uncompromising and extraordinarily frank, Nick Curtis' dramatic account of his life in Northern Ireland encompasses the extremities of urban civil war, the intrigues of undercover operations, and the political machinations that helped to form both.
