Britain's Ministry of Defense attempted to ban this too-candid account of operations in Northern Ireland, but copies are now available for distribution in the United States. The British effort in Northern Ireland made unprecedented use of electronic surveillance. The Special Air Service and other British elite assault units were highly dependent on information provided by a network of towers and other devices. Construction and maintenance of the towers was the job of the British Army's Royal Corps of Signals.The author and his fellow troopers of the "R. Sigs" had to climb and work on the electronic towers in full view of an often hostile population and occasionally even under fire. Jack Williams' account adds a previously little-known dimension to the campaign in Northern Ireland and provides a first-hand account of previously unknown operations and techniques.
