Fenian fire : the British government plot to assassinate Queen Victoria by Christopher Campbell( Book )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Of eight attempts to assassinate Queen Victoria during her long reign, three were of Irish origin. The most serious was the Jubilee Plot, a conspiracy apparently hatched in New York by the Fenina Brotherhood to blow up the Queen, her family and most of the British cabinet at the great thanksgiving service to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of her ascension, held at Westminster Abbey in 1887." "The story was a public sensation at the time. The empire held its breath as Irish-American bombers, who had waged a five-year campaign of dynamite attacks against British cities, seemed set to bring off the most spectacular outrage imaginable ..." "Now, in a historical investigation, the author Christy Campbell has unearthed the facts behind the most serpentine of all the attempts on Queen Victoria's life, and - using recently declassified Home and Foreign Office secret files, among many other archives - reveals for the first time the true instigator at the heart of government. For the conspiracy's real target was never the Queen. It was one of her turbulent subjects."--BOOK JACKET

During the darkest days of the Second World War, the Allies listened intently to the messages of the enemy. Every whisper built a picture of the threat to come - weapons that were terrifying in their murderous capabilities. Target London is the dramatic tale of the inception of the German V-weapons, the Allies' epic race to discover the truth about them and the rockets' effects on the streets of London. Investigative historian Christy Campbell brilliantly interweaves the many strands of this gripping episode. At the heart of this tale is London - the target of Nazi Germany's plan to crush British morale
