Voices from 9 Battery Royal Artillery in Northern Ireland, November 1971-March 1972

This book gives us an inside view of what it was like to be part of a British Army unit in Northern Ireland at the height of the troubles. The unit in question was an unlikely choice to be posted to a difficult urban environment – 9 (Plassey) Battery, Royal Artillery, but its men performed impressively during their time in Northern Ireland. The book is a follow-up to the author’s own published diaries, and focuses on one part of his experiences – a tour of duty in Andersonstown in the winter and spring of 1971-72. The author provides the narrative framework, and twenty of his fellow soldiers contribute their memories of events. Although the battery was present in one of the most difficult areas during one of the worst periods of the troubles, the mood isn’t entirely dark, but we do get a vivid picture of the sort of constant pressure they were under.

This book covers the period of the Bloody Sunday shoots, so we get to see how the troops reacted to the initial news and then to the developing story, as well as the impact on the streets of Andersonstown. The initial reaction was to assume that the incident had been just another of the apparently endless sequence of gun battles between the Army and the IRA, but that turned to horror when it became clear that the victims had been unarmed civilians. When the Paras appear elsewhere in the story there is an underlying feel that they were a bit of a law to themselves. The aftermath demonstrates very clearly why any military force involved in peacekeeping operations has to be incredibly careful to avoid similar disasters, as it triggered a massive rise in the level of violence and unrest in Andersonstown, aimed at the Army, the Police, and perhaps inevitably against the community itself, with shops burnt out and property damaged in the prolonged riots.

One particularly valuable aspect of this book is that each day we get a list of those people who died as a result of the troubles, with a brief explanation of who they were, how they died and who killed them. The infamous McGurk’s Pub Bombing, where loyalist terrorists murdered fifteen civilians came almost at the very start of their tour, but it took some time for it to become clear who had actually carried out that particular atrocity. A rough count taken from these snippets gives an idea both of the intensity and of the widespread and indiscriminate nature of the killing. The two branches of the IRA and other Republican groups were the most deadly, killing sixty people, just over half of them members of the security forces and just under half civilians (killed in a mix of bombings, deliberate shootings and during attacks on the security forces). Most remarkably, the IRA was responsible for the largest number of deaths amongst their own members, with around 19 killed either in accident shoots or when their own bombs blew up. The various loyalist terror grounds killed twenty civilians. The Army killed eighteen civilians, mainly on Bloody Sunday. Finally the Army killed seven IRA members during this period. This isn’t entirely typical of the troubles as a whole, although the Republicans were always the biggest killers, and killed twice as many civilians as the total number of deaths attributed to the Security Forces, and the loyalist groups almost entirely concentrated on killing civilians. This gives us a feel for the sort of environment within which the men of 9 Battery were operating – one in which violent death was constantly present, with themselves as the main targets.

The author has made a great deal of effort to provide a balanced account of this period. He and most of his fellow soldiers were angered and disgusted by the callous, violent attitude of the terrorists on both sides, but were inevitably angrier with the Republicans with whom they came into regular contact. However the book includes newspaper clippings from both sides and extracts from the IRA’s own newssheet, The Volunteer, so we do get some idea of how the other side saw the same events.

The impression one gets is of a well led unit, whose commanders were aware of the pressures on their men, and took steps to make sure they didn’t boil over. This includes at least one occasion when the men were kept in their barracks in the aftermath of an incident to give them time to cool down. Several of the individuals involved demonstrate the sort of attitude needed to operate in this sort of environment – don’t fire unless you are absolutely sure you have a valid target, don’t go out of your way to alienate the local community. This book will be of use to anyone who is about to carry out a similar duty, and also serves as an important reminder of the value of the peace process in Northern Ireland.

A Tough Nut to Crack: Andersonstown Voices from 9 Battery Royal Artillery in Northern Ireland, November 1971 - March 1972

On the outskirts of west Belfast in Northern Ireland, and in the shadow of the Black Mountain, is situated the predominantly Catholic community of Andersonstown. Between November 1971 and March 1972 this small area of land, which is just two miles long by one mile deep, became the scene of many gun-battles between the men of 9(Plassey) Battery, Royal Artillery and 1st Battalion Belfast Brigade, Irish Republican Army.

This book is a record of the violent clashes which took place on an almost daily basis on housing estates which looked no different than those found on mainland Britain. After the events of ‘Bloody Sunday’ in Londonderry on the 30 January 1972 in which thirteen civilians were shot dead, the attacks against the soldiers intensified to an unprecedented scale. The whole community of Andersonstown appeared to rise up against the small band of men from 9 Battery.

There are truly terrifying accounts from twenty of the men who took part in the struggle to maintain the peace on the streets of Andersonstown. They describe how it felt to face the rioters, and how it felt to be under attack from the Provo gunmen. Contemporary newspaper reports have been used to illustrate the viewpoints of both sides involved in the conflict. The book contains many recently discovered photographs of the arms and explosives found by the battery in their searches. None of these images have ever been published before. There are also reproduced statements issued by the Provisional IRA which originally appeared in the ‘Volunteer’ news sheet issued around the estates, and these serve to corroborate some of the astonishing tales told by the soldiers.

This is the only book about the Troubles in Northern Ireland which covers just one single tour of duty as seen through the eyes of the men who were there. By the end of the tour in March 1972 the IRA in Andersonstown had been almost completely destroyed as a fighting force. The 110-strong unit of men of 9 Battery were given a task to do, to crack The Toughest Nut – and they gave it their all.

“ … a historical gem capturing Belfast’s street level the “kinetic” that at times approached firefights of Helmand levels … It is an extraordinary account of a particularly punchy tour of Northern Ireland written by a soldier at the coalface.” Soldier Magazine

A Tough Nut to Crack: Andersonstown, Steve Corbett - History

With the Bicorne English Civil War Catalogue and Rules the reader is given a very simple and enjoyable insight into the English Civil War. A compellingly playable set of fast play rules provide entertainment and challenge for both the novice and veteran players alike, entwined with glorious pictures of the Bicorne English Civil War miniature figure range.

The rules have been extensively developed from the author's and friends' house rules. These were purposefully designed to provide a fast, fun and challenging game for wargamers of all abilities, whilst encouraging the education of the readers into the troops and the realities of warfare in the 17th Century. There are many parts to the book in addition to the rules, including an introduction to the Civil War written by Linda Doyle, and a section detailing troop types and uniforms.

This has all been designed alongside the catalogue of Bicorne troops where the reader is encouraged to collect and paint an army of model soldiers, with a view to playing enjoyable wargames with friends. To this end there is a section on how to build up your army if you are new to the period, as well as a couple of scenarios to give the reader a good idea of what can be achieved with this fun to play set of rules.

With more than 300,000 copies in print, When Helping Hurts is a paradigm-forming contemporary classic on the subject of poverty alleviation and ministry to those in need. Emphasizing the poverty of both heart and society, this book exposes the need that every person has and how it can be filled. The reader is brought to understand that poverty is much more than simply a lack of financial or material resources and that it takes much more than donations and handouts to solve the problem of poverty. While this book exposes past and current development efforts that churches have engaged in which unintentionally undermine the people they're trying to help, its central point is to provide proven strategies that challenge Christians to help the poor empower themselves. Focusing on both North American and Majority World contexts, When Helping Hurts catalyzes the idea that sustainable change for people living in poverty comes not from the outside-in, but from the inside-out.

When Helping Hurts is a paradigm-forming contemporary classic on the subject of poverty alleviation and has over 300,000 copies in print. Now there is a stand-alone resource to introduce this paradigm in an accessible way. Rather than simply looking at economics, it looks at the poverty of relationships between man and God, man and man, man and creation, and man and self. Utilizing free, online video lessons set both in Africa and the United States, the Small Group Experience is the ideal resource for small groups, Sunday school classes, parachurch and non-profit ministries, ministry training, and even individuals.In six lessons the concepts of When Helping Hurts are brought to the reader in a format that is perfect for training, discussion, and application. It is an ideal introduction to life-changing ideas and offers the perfect context for engagement. The videos provide expert instruction, and the Small group Experience provides questions and prompts for conversation, deeper learning, and taking action.

With over 300,000 copies in print, When Helping Hurts is a paradigm-forming contemporary classic on the subject of poverty alleviation. This stand-alone resource applies the principles of that book specifically to short term missions.

When a low-income person asks your church for help, what do you do next.

This book looks at what is needed to prevent the proliferation of harm and the gradual collapse of civil society. A wide range of expert contributors outline what might help to make better societies and which mechanisms, interventions and evidence are needed when we think about a better society.

Beschreibung

Im Gegensatz zu einsprachigen sind die zweisprachigen Lernerwörterbücher eine relativ neue lexikographische Erscheinung, deren Theorieschreibung noch in ihren Anfängen steckt. Obwohl Wörterbücher neben Grammatiken zu den wichtigsten Arbeitsmitteln von Fremdsprachenlernern und -lehrern gehören, verfügen viele Benutzer nur über wenige lexikographische Kenntnisse. Zunächst erfolgt eine Einführung in die Grundlagen der zweisprachigen Lexikographie sowie in die Theorie der zweisprachigen, alphabetisch geordneten Lernerwörterbücher. Daraus wird ein Fragenkatalog zur allgemeinen Bewertung zweisprachiger Lernerwörterbücher erarbeitet, auf dessen Grundlage das "Langenscheidt Power Wörterbuch Französisch" und das "PONS Express Wörterbuch Französisch" umfassend exemplarisch analysiert werden. Außerdem wird ein Beitrag zur Weiterentwicklung der Theorie der zweisprachigen Lernerwörterbücher geleistet. Dieses Buch wendet sich nicht nur an die lexikographische Fachöffentlichkeit, sondern vor allem an Fremdsprachenlehrerinnen und -lehrer, um nicht nur die Grundlagen der Lexikographie kompakt zu vermitteln, sondern auch Entscheidungshilfen bei der Auswahl geeigneter Wörterbücher zu geben.

Isabell K. Braun, angehende Lehrerin für Englisch und Französisch Studium der Anglistik und Romanistik für das Lehramt an Gymnasien an der Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen.
