Abstract:

Ireland's War of Independence generated a wealth of published material but little from a British perspective. Yet many British servicemen left fascinating accounts of their time in Ireland from 1918 to 1921. These eyewitnesses describe military operations, the IRA, the Irish, their own forces' actions, morale and relationships with local communities. Secret contacts between the British and the IRA and the use and abuse of intelligence are also detailed. It will surprise readers to learn many servicemen felt they were let down by British politicians agreeing to a truce and treaty. Others are outspoken in their dislike of war and the campaign. The author has gone deep into British military archives to unearth their stories.
