Brits Speak Out: British Soldiers' Impressions of the Northern Ireland Conflict
Guildhall Press, 1998 - Great Britain - 158 pages
Thousands of young British men spent long periods of their youth walking the streets of Belfast and Derry and the country lanes of Fermanagh, Tyrone and South Armagh, armed with lethal weapons. Occasionally they were welcomed; more often they were spat at, pelted with missiles, shot at or ignored. On their return to Britain there were no street parties or victory parades to welcome them home.
How did it feel to be a British soldier in Northern Ireland? How did the Army prepare them for their tours of duty there? What did they see as their role? In Brits Speak Out, 14 soldiers relate their own personal accounts of their time in Northern Ireland.
