Praise for the first edition of Irish Men and Women in the Second World War

"A fine addition to our knowledge of the war, as moving as any account will always be when it lets unassuming survivors speak to us." Ian S. Wood (History, 2001)

"Very detailed and meticulously annotated, showing evidence of painstaking research." (An Cosantóir, 1999)

"There is  tale or two to be told of the Irish in the Second World War – indeed, perhaps far too many; which is why [this book] is so impressive." Kevin Myers (The Irish Times, 1999)

"A marvellous read, beautifully written and covers all the Services as well as civilians." James Lucas (Blackthorn: Journal of the Royal Irish Regiment, 1999)
