On Whose Side

When I first received the email asking if I would write a review of the book Stakeknife, I was not keen. The books co-authors are People journalist Greg Harkin and ‘Martin Ingram’, a former member of the British Army in Ireland’s Intel Unit, the Force Research Unit (FRU), writing under a pseudonym. Having already read the book I felt it contained little that has not been placed in the public record elsewhere and often in a far more interesting style. Although to be fair to the two authors of this book, they themselves have contributed a number of articles on this matter in newspapers such as the People, Sunday Times, Guardian, Irish News and Andersonstown News.
