Hawks and Doves: The Crown and Ireland’s War of Independence (2020): Part 02


Introduction

Michael Portillo examines the undisturbed reports, letters and diaries that reveal how Britain’s perspectives on the Irish War of Independence were as divided as the island of Ireland itself. He unravels a web of mystery and intrigue woven by the British ruling classes, for whom the essential issue was never Ireland, but their own party and career advantage, and tells the story of a guerrilla war as told by those who tried to suppress it.
