Our PhD researcher Julieann Campbell has published On Bloody Sunday (Hachette, 2022).

In January 1972 British paratroopers opened fire on a peaceful civil rights march, killing 13. For years, the official narrative was that this was a gun battle between the IRA and British Army. In 2010 the Saville Inquiry rejected this official narrative and confirmed the victims were unarmed, many shot in the back or while assisting others.

In this oral history book, Julieann Campbell - whose uncle was killed on Bloody Sunday - draws on eyewitness accounts to tell the story of Bloody Sunday.
