The Guardian:

“One of the most important books about the dirty war fought in Northern Ireland during the 30 years between 1968 and 1998.

Lethal Allies: British Collusion in Ireland offers “indisputable evidence of security forces collusion” with loyalist paramilitaries.

“It alleges that members of the police force, the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC), and Ulster Defence Regiment (UDR) were part of a loyalist gang that killed more than 100 people in just one small area in the 1970s . . .”
