Ten Men Dead, David Beresford.
“Possibly the best book to emerge from the war in Ireland… An excellent history of the 1981 hunger strike in Ireland that details the broad cast of characters with insight and care.” – The New York Times Book Review
Ten Men Dead was written by the former Guardian correspondent to Ireland, the late David Beresford (d. 2016). It is a harrowing and thought provoking read about comradeship, selflessness and courage and devotion to one’s cause and principles. Drawing extensively on secret ‘comms’ (communications) and letters from the prisoners smuggled out at the time, David Beresford tells an intensely human story, offering a searing portrait of strife-torn Ireland, of the IRA, and the struggle of political prisoners against British brutality.
