    As the First World War ground to a close, Ireland's guerilla struggle against British rule escalated into full-scale conflict. British and American correspondents, including G K Chesterton and V S Pritchett, flocked to report the fighting, and were shocked by the methods used by the Black and Tans to suppress the uprising. This ground-breaking study examines the crucial role of the press in the battle for hearts and minds that led to the establishment of the Irish Free State. Slightly off-mint.
