You will probably find something useful among the following titles: Irish Volunteer Soldier 1913–23 (WAR 80) [illustrator: Bill Younghusband] Forces in Northern Ireland 1969–92 (ELI 44) [illustrator: Mike Chappell] Easter Rising 1916 Birth of the Irish Republic (CAM 180) [illustrator: Peter Dennis] The Anglo-Irish War The Troubles of 1913–1922 (WAR 65) The Irish Civil War 1922–23 (ESS 70)

WAR65 for The Anglo-Irish War The Troubles of 1913–1922 is wrong. it should be ESS 65. And the correct title for ELI 44 is Security Forces in Northern Ireland 1969–92. I also missed the following title: The Northern Ireland Troubles Operation Banner 1969–2007 (ESS 73)

An Osprey book on the IRA? Covering them in Essential Histories is one thing but a whole book devoted to a civilian terrorist group? No thanks, how would you feel if someone suggested an Elite title on the 9/11 terrorists? Osprey quite sensibly avoid such matters.

More to the point, osprey are by definition photo-heavy books, and there are (unsurprisingly) few photos of IRA men actually conducting acts of terrorism. Without photos, what you're going to get is surely just a synopsis of Tim Pat Coogan's trilogy on the troubles?

the problem with covering their extra criccular activities, IE the criminal empire they ran including, Intimidation, drugs, punnishment beatings, extortion, torture and the fear they generated in their own communities.
