Dark Times, Decent Men PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Dark Times, Decent Men free pdf At least 130,000 Irish - from north and south of the border - served during the Second World War. Seven thousand never returned. They fought as soldiers in Europe, North Africa and the Far East, as sailors in U-boat infested seas, and as airmen in the dangerous skies. Once again, the politics of home disappeared on the battlefields as Irishmen from different religious and political backgrounds struggled and died side by side. In this poignant yet detailed book, award winning author Neil Richardson documents veterans' stories with personal interviews, military records, diaries and letters. The time has now come to honour and acknowledge all those Irishmen who went to war.
