This is the classic text on the struggle for independence in Kerry. Originally published by The Kerryman in 1947, this is one of the four title in the "Fighting Stories Series". It records the events of the War of Independence in the words of the people who fought it and those who wrote about it at the time. The range of the book is incredible, everything from the formation of the volunteers, the German expedition to Tralee Bay during World War One, the Kerry Heroes of 1916, the RIC mutiny at Listowel Barracks, ambushes at Headford Junction, Lispole and Ballyduff, to the IRA firing party that challanged a Royal Navy ship in bantry bay in Autumn 1922. "Kerry's Fighting Story" is a treasure trove of information and intriguing detail.
