a place to recommend books on the struggles around the world. Just ordered INLA Deadky Divisions. Anyone else read it?
Other good read is South Armagh Bandit Country and Guerrilla Warfare by Che

'Voices From The Grave' is a must read. 'Year of the French' a fiction/historical account of the 1798 Rising in Mayo. Bobby Sands' 'Writings from prison' obviously.

i want "deadly divisions". i doubt they're are any Adams fans on here, myself included, but his books are excellent. i have signed ones back at home. Gerry signed them for me at Casement when i respected him. i even bought him a pint.

I got the 'Dirty War' out of the library ages ago but never got round to finishing it, I also got 'God and the Gun' as well which is also written by Martin Dillon but never even got round too looking at it.

Started 'Ten men dead' a few months ago but didn't get it finished either 'cause of my exams but what I read of it was great, need to finish it in the next few weeks.

Read 'The Hunger Strikes' by R.K. Walker a while back and that was an interesting read too, the only one I finished haha.
