The War of Independence, Paperback / softback Book

The War of Independence Paperback / softback


Like all guerrilla wars, the Irish War of Independence was characterised by great courage and ruthless brutality.

It created many heroes and spawned two of the most hated forces that a British government had ever inflicted on Ireland: the Black and Tans and the Auxiliaries.

This book traces the cause, development and consequences of the war, which led to the bloody birth of modern Ireland.
