In this poignant account, we are introduced to the victims of the day that has come to be known as Bloody Sunday. On January 30th, 1972, the British Army deployed the 1st Parachute Regiment to conduct an arrest operation in Derry during a Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association march. Twenty-six civil rights protesters were shot, and 14 died—a photographer, a golfer, a student, a prankster, and 10 other boys and men who we learn are very much like any fathers, sons, brothers, and friends. Featuring personal and striking images, their stories will be of note to people all around the world.

Bloody Sunday: The victims. That bullet passed through him before hitting another victim, Gerald Donaghey. In the Saville Report - a re-examination of the events of Bloody Sunday carried out by Lord Mark Saville and published in 2010 - said Mr Doherty was unarmed. The inquiry also found there was "no doubt" he was shot by Soldier F, who changed his story over the years. Widgery said his death was one of the most confusing episodes of the day and that forensic tests found no evidence that Mr McKinney had handled weapons.

Bloody Sunday, or the Bogside Massacre, was a massacre on 30 January 1972 in the Bogside area of Derry, Northern Ireland, when British soldiers shot 28 unarmed civilians during a protest march against internment. Fourteen people died: thirteen were killed outright, while the death of another man four months later was attributed to his injuries. Many of the victims were shot while fleeing from the soldiers and some were shot while trying to help the wounded.

The History Press Before Sunday. Lady of Milkweed Manor: The engaging and moving story of a once-proper lady who finds herself in a most unexpected situation; a romance set in Regency England. One of the better historical Christian fiction books I've read. This was a good book.

Thirteen people lost their lives when British soldiers opened fire on a civil rights march in Londonderry in 1972. Another man died five months later. The original Widgery Inquiry outraged families when it said some of the dead might have handled weapons or explosives. The Saville Report found none of the casualties "posed a threat of causing death or serious injury or indeed was doing anything else that could on any view justify their shooting". Find out below what happened to each victim, what Widgery said and the findings from the newly-published Saville Report, a 12-year undertaking.

Why don’t you come to chapel on Sunday?’ he asks. I tell him I’m an atheist, so it would be grossly hypocritical. You’ll get the whole morning out of the cell. It’s like mainlining my old life again and helps me see tiny specks of light at the end of a long, dark tunnel. I assumed the visit would boost my spirits, but it suddenly hits me that I’m only allowed two visits a month. I won’t see Kit again for another fortnight.

Jennifer Faus has done something which, up to this time very few people, if any, have attempted to do: to tell the stories of the victims of the Bloody Sunday massacre in Northern Ireland. The stories of these people are both heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time as family members and friends talk about the loved ones they lost because they decided to join in a protest for equal rights. The actions of the British Government and what they did after the slaughter of these innocent people is just sickening and certainly makes you realize why organizations such as the I.R.A. exist in the first place.

The Bloody Sunday massacre was a horrible event which never should have happened. The fact that very few people understand how evil the actions of the British Government were and what they did afterwards makes this book so much more important. Everybody seems to forget about the fact that the British Government denied that the event ever took place for several weeks after the incident, and then when it was inevitable that the cover up could not be contained anymore, they portrayed the victims as the bad guys - planting false evidence on them, trying to trash the reputations of the victims, and even harrassing the members of the families afterwards (one woman whose son was killed had her house constantly raided by the British every few weeks for years after the massacre).

I applaud Jennifer Faus for writing this book and finally telling the stories of the victims of Bloody Sunday. It's about time that the victims stopped being treated as the criminals.

A few thoughts of "Before Sunday, The Life Stories of the Bloody Sunday Victims" by Jennifer Faus:

I have to thank the author for opening my eyes to what really happend that tragic day. I am embarrased to say that the only thing I knew about Bloody Sunday were the lyrics in the "U2" song of the same name.

So often when we read about killings of people in the paper ,the article will simply state their name, age, and maybe profession of the fallen. We then would sigh, say how very sad it is,and then carry on with our day.

Faus bring such "data" to life. She goes beyond. She explores the still -felt -today results of the slayings by interviewing the spouses, families, and friends of the victims. Soon enough, the reader finds that many more than 14 lives were destroyed at the peaceful march in Derry, Ireland on 30 Jan 1972 - many hundreds were.

Not only should historians, politicians, teachers read this book, truly,
it should be required reading for military and police leaders worldwide
who far too often don't make it absolutely, positively clear to their forces how to professionally conduct themselves at public gatherings.

I couldn't help finishing the book without Bono's lyric of "How Long Must We Sing This Song?" echoing in my head.

Thank you, Jennifer Faus.

Very much a tear jerker but each of these victims deserved to be more than just a footnote, they deserved to have their stories told. It is sickening how long they had to (and still do) wait for justice.
