This is the gripping and always entertaining story of an ordinary man's struggle against a criminal psychopath. Wolfgang Eulitz worked hard to set up his hot dog business on Dublin's Leeson Street. After four successful years of witnessing the chaos and characters of Dublin city's nightlife, notorious crime boss Martin Cahill appeared and tried to muscle in on Eulitz's lucrative business. The hot dog wars had begun.
"At the end of his outstretched hands he held a gun, which he now aimed directly at my head. These thugs were here for more than just money. These thugs belonged to Martin Cahill, alias `The General'."
Wolfgang Eulitz reveals that the popular perception that Martin Cahill as an `ordinary decent criminal' is wildly inaccurate, and that he was in fact a cruel, sadistic and dangerous thug intent on destroying other peoples' livelihoods. The General and I leaves you in no doubt which version you should believe.
