Rigger, Paperback / softback Book


A graphic personal account, The Rigger exposes the extreme risks undertaken by specialist operators in order to provide and maintain first-class communications in Northern Ireland. The author, who served alongside the SAS and other covert military organisations, spares no detail in describing the dangers, tensions, dramas and humour of life at the sharp end. Climbing 400-foot masts is not for the faint-hearted at the best of times but to do so in the bandit country of South Armagh or above staunchly IRA enclaves of Belfast and Londonderry is a whole new ball-game and, for some not as lucky as Jack Williams, a fatal one.
