Beschreibung

This collection of essays sets out to correct an injustice to citizens of the Irish Free State, or Twenty-Six Counties, whose contribution to the victory against Nazi Germany in the Second World War has thus far been obscured. The historical facts reveal a divided island of Ireland, in which the volunteers from the South were obliged to fight in a foreign (that is, British) army, navy and air force. Recent research has now placed this contribution on a secure basis of historical and statistical fact for the first time, showing that the total number of Irish dead (more than nine thousand) was divided more or less equally between the two parts of Ireland.

The writers in this volume establish that the contribution by Ireland to the eventual liberation of France was not only during the fighting at Dunkirk in 1940 and in Normandy in 1944, but throughout the conflict, as revealed by the list of the dead of Trinity College Dublin, which is examined in one chapter. Respect for human values in the midst of war is shown to have been alive in Ireland, with chapters examining the treatment of shipwreck casualties on Irish shores and the Irish hospital at Saint Lô in France. Other essays in the volume place these events within the complex diplomatic network of a neutral Irish Free State and examine the nature and necessity of memorial in the context of a divided Ireland.

Gerald Morgan was a postgraduate at Jesus College, Oxford, before moving to Trinity College Dublin, where he still teaches. He was a Fellow of Trinity from 1993 to 2002. His primary research field is medieval literature and his most recent book is The Shaping of English Poetry (Peter Lang, 2010).

Gavin Hughes is currently Research Associate at the Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, Trinity College Dublin. He holds a PhD from the University of Wales, Lampeter.
