Heroes of Jadotville free pdf In 1961, during the United Nations intervention in the Katanga conflict in the Congo, central Africa, a company of Irish UN troops was forced to surrender to troops loyal to the Katangese Prime Minister Moise Tshombe. The contingent of Irish UN troops sent to protect the Belgian colonists and local population in Jadotville (now called Likasi) were shamefully attacked by those they were sent to protect. This book is their story. Using interviews and eye witness accounts, as well as previously hushed up factual evidence, journalist and author Rose Doyle, here, exposes how in the burial of The Jadotville Affair there lies the wider question of how, as well as why, these Irish peacekeeping soldiers became pawns in the international politics for control of Katanga and its vast mineral wealth.
