1 in stock
The Irish munitions strike is one of the most important, yet neglected, episodes of the War of Independence and Peter Rigney’s book has redressed the balance. He shows how ordinary railway workers and the wider trade union movement used civil resistance to bring the British war effort to a virtual standstill for much of 1920. It is essential reading for every future historian of the period and will inform the general reader’s understanding of the times.
