An eerie calm prevails in the deserted streets of the Bogside in Londonderry, N Ireland, during the British Army's Operation Motorman when thousands of soldiers and hundreds of vehicles invaded the area to retake the "no-go areas" controlled by Irish republican paramilitaries. Motorman was the biggest British military operation since the Suez Crisis in 1956. 197207310636a.
