William Sheehan has gone deep into British military archives to unearth these never-published accounts from British soldiers, sailors, and airmen who served in The Irish War of Independence. Military operations, views on the IRA, the Irish, actions of their forces, morale and local communities are all described. Surprisingly many felt they were winning the war, while others are outspoken in their dislike of the war. Vivid accounts of the treatment of prisoners will find a contemporary echo. The book includes accounts from famous soldiers like Field Marshall Montgomery and General Percival as well as soldiers tales of drinking sessions with Michael Collins and humorous eavesdropping stories.
