Gunrunners : The Covert Arms Trail to Ireland, Hardback Book

Gunrunners : The Covert Arms Trail to Ireland Hardback


Sean Boyne, an expert on defence and arms trafficking gives us a facinating but disturbing insight into the shadowy world of arms dealers, spies and moles. With interviews with the dealers, agents and traffickers involved in the movement of huge quantities of arms into Ireland in the 1970s and 1980s, Sean Boyne exposes many of the little-known aspects of this part of Irish history, such as the IRA's connections to the KGB and Libya. Fully illustrated, with high quality photographs and graphs throughout, Gunrunners lays bare the hidden world of some of the most dangerous people who played a part in this often misunderstood part of Irish history.
