On Saturday 15th August, , a massive bomb placed by the so-called Real IRA ripped through the town of Omagh, killing twenty-nine people, including eleven children, and injuring over two hundred. It was the worst massacre in Northern Ireland's modern history- yet from it came a most extraordinary tale of human resilience, as the families of ten of the dead channelled their grief into action. Taking for their motto, 'For evil to triumph, all that is necessary is for good men to do nothing', they decided to pursue the men whom the police believed responsible for the atrocity through the civil courts, where the burden of proof is lower.http://websrv2-nginx.classic.com.np/cronicas-de-sombras-1-elegidos.php

This is the remarkable account of how these families—who had no knowledge of the law and no money, and included a cleaner, a mechanic, and a bookie—became internationally recognized, formidable campaigners and surmounted countless daunting obstacles to win a famous victory. How these mothers and fathers and sisters and brothers turned themselves into the scourge of the Real IRA is not just an astonishing story in itself.
It is also a universal story of David challenging Goliath, as well as an inspiration to ordinary people anywhere devastated by terrorism. Get A Copy. Paperback , pages. More Details Other Editions 4.

Sep 29, James Winter rated it liked it. I truly enjoyed the first half of this book, and as one with a keen interest in Omagh as both a writer and researcher, Edwards' access to the victims puts us in touch with feelings not available in other news stories. The victims become more human, less owned by the media.
They move from the public to the private conscience. That's the real value of this book.

My issue began with the fundraising chapter and moving straight-through to the end. So much time is spent on the players of the trail and I truly enjoyed the first half of this book, and as one with a keen interest in Omagh as both a writer and researcher, Edwards' access to the victims puts us in touch with feelings not available in other news stories. So much time is spent on the players of the trail and court proceedings, mostly on the side of the victims, that I never felt in the moment in the courtroom itself.
The defendants never seemed more than cliches, and I wish the author had spent time making the likes of McKevitt and Murphy human, or rather, painting the problem of them as human. I realize this might be giving terrorists more than their due, and I'm in no way advocating for the likes of the RIRA. But to depict them as human lessens their monstrousness, in my view. Faces and names aren't enough.

Besides their bio sheet and RIRA actions, who were these men? How did they come to do such things, besides the easy abstract notions of a united Ireland? Of course, maybe this book isn't the place for such things, an analysis too big for the scope of the project. Oct 15, Tommy rated it liked it Recommended to Tommy by: Library. First section : Not for the squemish!! Lots of legalise thereafter!! A chilling insight into the working of terrorist groups and the British and Irish governments obsession with appeasing them at the expense of ordinary law-abiding folk!!
