Admired by Che Guevara, feared by the British Army, loved by the people he led.
Tom Barry, legendary Commander of the West Cork Flying Column, survived the War of Independence to tell his incredible story. Barry led a volunteer army in a hide-and-seek campaign of guerilla warfare, matching wits against an enemy of overwhelming strength and power. His biographical story inspired the award winning film The Wind That Shakes The Barley.
Guerilla Days in Ireland is Barry’s compelling first-hand account of the struggle for independence in Cork – the Rebel County.
