The story of Ireland’s phoney neutrality during World War II

Out of print. Last copy. New and in good condition. Slight marks on the dust jacket

Irish diplomats spied for the United States during the course of the war. Irish diplomats in Europe carried messages and supplied information to the OSS - the predecessor of the CIA - with the full knowledge and consent of de Valera.

Behind the Green Curtain is a comprehensive account of Irish neutrality, focusing strongly on the American - and to a lesser extent the Canadian - connection. It confirms beyond any doubt that Ireland made a positive and partisan contribution to the allied war effort.

Neutrality has become a shibboleth of modern Irish politics. Behind the Green Curtain explodes the myth behind that shibboleth in the most decisive way.
