Spanning the three decades of 'the Troubles', the British Army's deployment in Northern Ireland (codenamed Operation Banner) was one of the most difficult and controversial in its recent history. No fewer than 10,000 troops were on active service during the campaign, which saw armoured vehicles, helicopters and special forces deployed onto the streets of Ulster. This new account considers the strategic, operational and tactical aspects of Banner, as the Army s operation morphed from high-profile peacekeeping into a covert war against the IRA. Drawing on extensive new research, this book presents an authoritative introduction to the Army's role in the Troubles, providing expert analysis of the campaign's successes and failures.
