The Irish war of Independence has generated a wealth of published material but very little from a British perspective. Many British soldiers, sailors and airmen who served in Ireland from 1918-1921 left accounts of their service. Most describe military operations, views on the IRA, the Irish, the actions of their own forces, morale and relationships with local communities. Secret contacts between the British and the IRA and the use and abuse of intelligence are described. The author has delved deep into British military archives to unearth never-before published accounts.
