Gunsmoke and Mirrors: How Sinn Fein Dressed Up Defeat as Victory
In this book, Henry McDonald, himself from nationalist west Belfast, talks to ex-IRA men about their real motivations for starting their war. He gets past the cheap hagiography of terrorists and the wasted lives of a generation to focus on one essential truth: none of the IRA's principal war aims was achieved.
