' Here Cahill gives his full and frank story -- of a life spent in prison, on hunger strike, on the run, in safe houses, in action, and latterly in the corridors of power of Washington as the Good Friday Agreement was being negotiated. He tells of narrowly avoiding execution in 1942; his visit to Colonel Gaddafi to smuggle arms; Bloody Sunday and the burning of the British Embassy in Dublin; the high-drama helicopter escape of IRA prisoners from Mountjoy jail.Cahill's has been an extraordinary journey, his own life mirroring the growth and development of the republican movement through more than sixty years of intense involvement. New updated edition.
