More About Siege at Jadotville by Declan Power
 
 
 
Overview

Jadotville, starring Fifty Shades of Grey's Jamie Dornan, premiere's on Neflix in Fall 2016.

In September 1961, another chapter in Irish military history should have been written into the annals, but it is a tale that lay shrouded in dust for years.

The men of A Company, Thirty-Fifth Irish Infantry Battalion, arrived in the Congo as a United Nations contingent to help keep the peace. For many it would be their first trip outside their native shores. Led by Commandant Pat Quinlan, A Company found themselves tasked with protecting the European population at Jadotville, a small mining town in the southern Congolese province of Katanga. It fell to A Company to protect those who would later turn against them. On September 13th, 1961, the bright morning air of Jadotville was shattered by the sound of automatic gunfire.
