Fighting for Dublin: The British Battle for Dublin, 1919-1921

Fighting for Dublin: The British Battle for Dublin, 1919-1921 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Having edited accounts of British servicemen who served in Ireland during the revolution (British Voices), Sheehan here combs the official British military record of the campaign, now at the National Archives in Kew, and presents key documents. The main document is the Dublin District Historical Record. His appendices provide information on intelligence in Dublin 1920-21 and biographies of British officers. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This new book details the official British history of the Irish War of Independence on the streets of Dublin. Biographies of the main British officers responsible for fighting the campaign are provided and new information about the British officers killed on Bloody Sunday in 1920 undermines traditional beliefs about them. Also included are sections of detailed orders distributed to British officers and guidelines for conducting military operations. Of interest is the technology used: aircraft, wireless radio, armored cars, and a listening set in the cellars of Dublin Castle to detect IRA mining. The records also show evidence of strong criticism of politicians. Familiar names and events described include Kevin Barry's arrest. Dan Breen's injuries, burning the Custom House, the searching of Michael Collins' offices, the arrests of de Valera and Erskine Childers, and Bloody Sunday at Croke Park.
