Summary
Britain's Long War evaluates Britain's strategy in the Northern Ireland conflict. What were the aims of British policy? How did the Government use the political, military and economic means at its disposal and were these methods successful? Peter R. Neumann examines the major turning points in the Northern Ireland conflict, starting with Westminster's first intervention in 1969 and concluding with the signing of the Good Friday Peace Agreement in 1998. Exploring the political and military strategy behind internment, 'shoot to kill' and the background to the Sunningdale Executive and the Anglo-Irish Agreement, Neumann analyses why the peace process started and how it almost failed. Drawing on recently released cabinet papers as well as interviews with key policymakers, Britain's Long War is an extensively researched study of the activities of the British government in Northern Ireland that will be essential reading for students of this important chapter in British history.--
