THE BOLD TARTAN MEN OF ULSTER
The Bold Tartan Men of Ulster
An illustration based on powerful true events in 1973 through the eyes of a sixteen-year-old during the Ulster troubles. Glasgo, who like many of his generation felt compelled to belong to a movement in defense of a frantic loyalist cause. In order to escape the violence of a disenfranchised home, he naively walks into a maelstrom of paramilitary mayhem as civil war looms.
The Tartan clans, the footmen of the Orange Paramilitaries where engaged to do their cold bidding. Here he teams up his cohorts. Angel and Georgy. But who really are they?
Like most tormented young men of his age, he succumbs to the gang membership then innocently caught up with the vengeful politics of Northern Ireland.
The Author tells it as it is, in a compelling but gripping story of events, that also takes in what was going on behind the scenes at the local police station, as the novel takes on a different angle.
Rampage, and they are ready for the madness in doing the Paramilitaries bidding. To stop them; a capable seventy five year old veteran of both world wars, with a walking stick.
