G.Q.G. Secteur 1. Trois ans au Grand quartier général par le rédacteur de "communique." by Jean de Pierrefeu( Book )

4 editions published between 1924 and 2011 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Journalist in charge of the daily military communiques at French headquarters gives his view of the events as he saw them under the changing French war leadership. Although information on the early years of Jean de Pierrefeu is sketchy, even in his native France, however it is known that he started his journalistic career in 1905 and by 1908 was working for the political weekly L'Opinion. He career continued, leaning toward nationalist sympathies, until he was mobilized as part of the French Army reserves. Swiftly wounded and invalided out of the line, he began working for the Grand Quartier-Gňřal in 1915 as part of the staff dealing with the evening new bulletins. He would have to use all of his journalistic skill to be as economical with the brutal truth of the losses and reverses at the front suffered by the French during 1915-1918. During this period he met with all of the senior officers of the French High Command of whom he had varied opinions of their skill; it was during this time that he began to become disillusioned with the French leadership. After the First World War ended Pierrefeu sharpened his criticisms and published his damning criticism of the French Army as "French Headquarters, 1915-1918". He is frequently critical of his superiors and the elegant lifestyle at headquarters and holds back nothing in his vivid depiction of army life

The administration of Ireland, 1920 by I. O( Book )

8 editions published between 1921 and 1922 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" Written 'anonymously' by I.O., the author of the Administration of Ireland is identified as Major John Charles Street (1884-1964), using the pseudonym 'I.O', which stood for information officer, a post he held at Dublin Castle during the Irish War of Independence when he wrote this account. Beginning his army career as an artillery officer for the British Army, he served as a propagandist for MI7 during World War I, at which time he was promoted to Major. After leaving the army, Street earned his living as a novelist and under the pen names of Miles Burton, Cecil Wayne and John Rhode, through which he published scores of detective novels, many of which were centred around the character Dr. Priestley As an information officer at Dublin Castle Street was well placed to observe and record the tumultuous events in Ireland during 1920. Inconceivable at the time of writing, Street like many Britons still believed that Britain could keep Ireland within the Empire. Some observers have viewed The Administration of Ireland as an apologia for the Black-and-Tan campaign of 1920 and while there is some truth to this the book is also seen as a coherent statement of British policy in and towards Ireland, written and published at the height of the War of Independence. Making great use of privileged access to intelligence information at Dublin Castle, The Administration of Ireland is both an historical document in its own right and a great source of material, albeit with a a British slant, on the Irish War of Independence. Starting with an introduction stretching from the Easter Rising to the close of 1919, The Administration of Ireland is perhaps ironically prefaced by a transcript of the Declaration of Independence made at the GPO in Dublin during Easter 1916. The introductory chapters sought to establish the extent and level of Republicanism, both militarily and amongst the civilian population, that were pitted against Britain in 1920. From the beginning of 1920 through to the end of the year Street utilises all the intelligence information at his disposal describing IRA activity throughout the country and the Government's responses to this, perhaps understandably playing-down the role of the Black-and-Tans. This information includes communiques from IRA Brigade commanders, arrests and trials in district courts of IRA members and a number of case reports of IRA murders throughout Dublin City, and atrocities conducted in the name of independence by both sides. Following chapters include accounts and evidence on the arming and forces of the Republican army, its campaign in Ireland, the role of the police and questions of reprisals. All-in-all The Administration of Ireland, 1920, is a thorough account of the Irish War of Independence written by a participant and observer of events. Bias aside, The Administration of Ireland verges on a source-book for the events that took place in Ireland in 1920, which led in such a short space of time to Britain's withdrawal from this small but important part of its empire
