Am eyeing the new book on the Irish Citizen Army, The ‘Labour Hercules’: The Irish Citizen Army and Irish Republicanism, 1913–23, by Jeffrey Leddin, anyone read it?

Peter Taylors series of books on the Troubles (Provos 1997), (Loyalists 1997) & (Brits 1999.

Here's a small bit about the IRA's descion on bombing London in 1973.
Peter Taylor asks Billy mcKee who died a few weeks ago on the thought process behind taking the war to England.
"There had been a dicussion early on about bombing England. I thought we should wait until there was a crisis (in the IRA) before we should start. I agreed with the strategy but I didn't agree with bombing civilians, pubs that were full of people and so forth. I didn't condone that. Blowing up the Houses of Parliament wouldn't have made any difference to me but not ordinary civilians."
