The new book from Dr W R Matchett detailing the effectiveness of the RUC Special Branch and their management of Itelligence during the conflict in Northern Ireland.

"Intelligent, captivating and disturbing in equal measure. William Matchett's  ‘Secret Victory’ reveals how the IRA was infiltrated, degraded and strategically defeated – at times with violent and deadly consequences. To read this book is to understand how intelligence drives irregular conflicts"

Doug Beattie MC MLA (Author of, An Ordinary Soldier)


"If there is a debt contracted by history, it is a debt owed to the patient, methodical, unseen, dangerous and thankless task of intelligence gathering performed by the RUC’s Special Branch. Matchett shows how its intelligence operations so confined the capacity for terrorism that it made possible the conditions for political agreement. This is often mentioned in passing by those writing on Northern Ireland. Matchett tells us how it was achieved. In doing so, he has produced a book of major significance"

Arthur Aughey

Emeritus Professor at the University of Ulster


"This book poses a simple, but hitherto under examined subject regarding the effectiveness of the RUC Special Branch in combating violent subversion during the Northern Ireland crisis: a challenging topic, surrounded as it is by historical contention, political dispute and the innate secrecy of the Branch’s work. This has conspired to produce a lack of informed commentary on the topic, which this work successfully redresses"

Professor Michael Rainsborough

Head of War Studies, King’s College London
