It also made a very strong point of casting aspersions on Martin McGuiness' testimony at the inquiry and his rationale for being evasive. Obviously the opinion is the authors but I enjoyed seeing him painted in his true colors.
The chapter on the intelligence reports from before the event are fascinating...absolutely fascinating and if they are true, which we'll probably never know, cast a whole new light on the day. I plan on trawling through them myself on the Saville enquiry website. Speaking of which, I can't be bothered to look up the link and paste it here but if you go to the Saville report website you can read the ENTIRE report, ALL of the witness testimony and see ALL of the photos taken that day. Reading it all would be a massive undertaking but it'll allow you to do your own research.
I'm not a fan of the Saville Inquiry or the results as it was obviously a massive appeasement exercise held too far after the event to have any real value but this book was a great read, well written and thought provoking.
Murray's sleek and appealing prose speeds his reader through the litany of terrible events, terrible to protagonists and antagonists alike. He navigates prudently a maze of contradiction and fearlessly confronts the irreconcilable and conflicting testiments of actors of all hues in this tragedy. This is good history. It is equally good historiography.
