This work examines the Provos, from 1969, when the IRA was effectively dead and buried, to within a few short years, when it had resurrected to become the most feared and sophisticated terrorist organization in the world. The book is based on in-depth interviews with key personalities in the Army, Police, British and Irish governments, giving first-hand accounts of the key events. It contains material not included in the television series being broadcast on BBC 1 in autumn 1997. Peter Taylor is the author of "Beating the Terrorists?", "Stalker - The Search for the Truth", "Families at War" and "States of Terror". In 1995, Peter Taylor was presented with the Royal Television Society's Judges' Award for his lifetime's coverage of Northern Ireland. In addition, he has won three RTS awards for his documentaries "Stalker", "The Volunteer" and "The Maze".show more
