War in the West 1918–1923
The Struggle for Irish Independence on the Dingle Peninsula based on the testimonies of those who fought the campaign.
War in the West uncovers the hidden history of the War of Independence in West Kerry. In doing so, it offers a unique account of how the struggle for independence was advanced in a particular region of the country. The book offers a chronological narrative of the military actions that marked the course of the war. Ambush sites are illustrated with location maps, while a fold-out map charts every major incident between 1918 and 1923. It names the many previously unknown Volunteers and members of Cumann na mBan who put their lives on the line during these revolutionary years. Their stories are an inspirational record for their descendants and Kerry people everywhere in this decade of commemoration.
