Early on a Saturday morning in August 1998, a car was parked in Omagh's high street.
By the afternoon, the pavements had filled with shoppers, and then explosives packed inside the vehicle detonated.
The force of the blast blew babies across the street, and tore the limbs from children.
One body was identified only by its fingerprints. It was the worst single atrocity of the Troubles. Only it could have been avoided. Kevin Fulton had infiltrated the IRA. When news came to him of the planned attack, he handed the information on to his handlers.
It was ignored. This is just one of the revelations in this, the most significant book ever to be published about the ongoing war in Northern Ireland.
Unsung Hero is a nail-biting, controversial and explosive book; it will profoundly change the way the Troubles are viewed, and it will cause a stir in the highest echelons of government.
