Former soldier Ken Wharton witnessed the troubles in Northern Ireland first hand. Bloody Belfast is a fascinating oral history given a chilling insight into the killing grounds of Belfast's streets. Wharton's work is based on first hand accounts from the soldiers who experienced the violence in Belfast. The reader can walk the darkened, dangerous streets of the Lower Falls, the Divis Street, and new Lodge alongside the soldiers who braved the hate-filled mobs on the newer, but no less violent streets of the Murph, Turf Lodge, and Andersonstown. Wharton's reputation for honesty established from previous works has encouraged more former soldiers of Britain's forgotten army to come forward to tell their stories of "Bloody Belfast." The book continues the story of his previous work, presenting the truth about a conflict which has been deliberately underplayed by the MOD.
