The Irish in World War II Part 1

The Irish in World War II Part 1

The extensive coverage in both British and Irish media of the subject matter of World War I, World War II and The Irish Revolution of 1916 over a prolonged and recent period; was what led us to decide to look more closely at the situation of the Irish during these troubled times.
Thousands of Irish soldiers who were punished in their home country for joining British forces to fight.
The impact of the two world conflicts on the tiny nation and unfortunate people of Ireland and the complexities therein, provide for fascinating (if not) heart-breaking reviewing. So many people gave so very much and were let down so badly by those governing them and their neighbours, family and friends.
