This is the companion volume to the highly-successful Irish Men and Women in the Second World War. This book continues the theme of the role played by the Irish in one of history's greatest conflicts. There are more experiences of Irish sailors and infantry soldiers as well as accounts from Irish artillerymen, tank crewmen, Coastal Command fliers and merchant sailors. Irish men and women who served in other Allied forces are included as are the Irish who fought behind the lines with resistance movements in western Europe (including, most famously, Samuel Beckett). Finally, the author looks at those Irish who sided with Hitler and German attempts to enlist the help of the Irish. Together with its companion volume, this book provides a panoramic view of the Irish involvement in the Second World War, an involvement much greater than the country's 'neutral' status might suggest.
