Bandit Country: The IRA and South Armagh

by Toby Harnden

Famously described as ‘Bandit Country’ by Merlyn Rees when he was Northern Ireland Secretary, for nearly three decades South Armagh was the most dangerous posting in the world for a British soldier.

In this acclaimed work of reportage, originally published in 2000, Toby Harnden stripped away the myth and propaganda associated with the region to produce one of the most compelling and important books on the Troubles. Drawing on secret documents and interviews on South Armagh’s recent history, Harnden told the inside story of how the IRA came close to bringing the British state to its knees.
