    One thought on “Those Are Real Bullets: Bloody Sunday, Derry, 1972”

    1. While at times a confusing read (many, many people and street names to sift through), the book pieces together a coherent picture of a traumatizing day from hundred of accounts. It aims to and succeeds in giving a comkpelt rundown of the events of Bloody Sunday and lay deserve blame at the feet of the government and military establishment in Derry at the time.

    2. Brilliantly written. From what I can see there is a slight bias toward the Catholic community but I think they have taken evidence from both sides of the tradegy and have tried to paint a realistic picture of what happened that day. I read this book because when I was travelling through Ireland we stopped off in Derry/Londonderry and I was intrigued by the segregation between the Catholic and Protestant communities. I wasn't actually aware that Bloody Sunday occured until we arrived in the city [...]

    3. Didn't finish this one. I wanted to read it to learn more about Bloody Sunday. This book is good if you want a very detailed description of the events of the actual day. I would have preferred more historical context. It seems to have been written for an Irish audience, and I found it hard to keep track of all of the organizations, individuals, and acronyms. I did learn some stuff, though.

    4. Overall a pretty good read. I have always had an interest in Irish history and this book was a long yet interesting account of the Bloody Sunday Massacre in 1972. It seems to be a bit biased on the Catholic side, but it gave a truer account of the atrocities that occurred that day, even if it was long in coming. I would definitely recommend it to anyone with interests in Irish history.

    5. We all know about Bloody Sunday but this gives a whole new perspective. You get to truly know some of these people. When you've finished reading it, watch 'Blood Sunday' (the movie). Or don't's hard to take all of it in.

    6. Chilling account of a devastating day. Since I have not previously read much recent Irish history, I would have preferred more historical context and fewer details, but I suspect I was not the intended audience.

    7. This is a really well written disturbing book. Being 40 this was all during my life time yet I know so little about this important period. It has made me go out and by two more books about the period. Any recommendations welcome

    8. One of the most gut-wrenching finest portrayals of a truth that will not be denied. The book is written form a first hand perspective and sugar coates nothing.

    9. It's hard to say that you love a true story about innocent people who are killed. It's a great book and it's upsetting. It's a very complicated subject.
