Book Details

In 1920, Ireland was torn apart by a conflict as she tried to break free from British rule. It became a bloody conflict of murder as both sides grappled for the people of Ireland. The British government sent out supplementary policemen to swell the ranks of the Royal Irish Constabulary. Most of these men were ex-soldiers from the Great War and had their own special brand of community policing. Lacking any sense of good will and suspecting all to be in league with the Nationalist enemy, the supplementary policemen earned a fearsome reputation and were nicknamed the Black and Tans.
