This is an auction for A LOCAL HARD WAR: THE BRITISH ARMY AND THE GUERRILLA WAR IN CORK 1919-1921, by William Sheehan. reviews:

"As a Corkonian I'm an avid reader of Irish history particularly history involving Cork. This book obviously takes a different slant on things compared to other books on the subject. I found it very hard to take when reading about how advanced the British military were and especially how close the IRA came to defeat. I've known about the terrible situation the IRA were in for a long time however this book with it's excellent research really confirmed how bad things were. Thank God a truce was agreed when it was or my country would not have achieved what it has. I really enjoyed reading about my home town of Fermoy and thought overall the book is an excellent read (even if the facts are hard to digest for Corkonians). I thought it was especially interesting that the author chose to look at the subject from the British perspective which provided me with a greater insight into the British military machine. I purchase books from both sides in a conflict to ensure a fair and balanced assessment of the subject can be made and I recommend this to anyone interested in Irish history."
