Kerry's Fighting Story 1916-21 - Introduction by J.J Lee Various

ISBN: 9781856356411

Almost a century ago a small body of men engaged in combat with the armed forces of an Empire. Militarily they
were weak. Their strength lay in their faith in their cause and in the unflinching support of a civilian population which
refused to be cowed by threats or by violence.

This new edition of 'Kerry’s Fighting Stories' features stories and reports from every aspect of the conflict, from the
formation of the Volunteers in Kerry early in the twentieth century, through the first casualties as the Easter Rising
took its toll and on to the campaigns in the East and West of the county during the war of Independence itself.

With barracks attacks, ambushes, shootings and even engagements with warships, it brings to life a conflict that is
fading from the collective memory of the county and country.
Kerry’s Fighting Stories offers a fascinating perspective on the struggle for independence in Kerry directly from the
men who took part in the actions themselves.
