After ten years, and the release of historical state and personal papers, Richard O'Rawe's explosive assertions in Blanketmen have been vindicated. At the centre of Blanketmen lies the declaration that six of the ten men on hunger strike in the H-Block unit of Long Kesh Prison starved themselves to death in vain, as an offer from the British Government was on the table that could have ended the strike after four of them had died. The IRA Council chose not to communicate this offer to their comrades, to disastrous effect. In this passionate, disturbing and controversial book, O'Rawe reveals the reasons and motives behind the negotiations and strategy changes that eventually brought about the Peace Process.
