Dramatic stories of Irishmen who served in the second World War.
Over 130,000 Irishmen and women served during the Second World War despite Ireland's neutrality. Seven thousand five hundred never returned. Illustrated with over 130 photographs and memorabilia, Dark Times, Decent Men gathers dramatic firsthand stories from Irishmen who went to war:
  • The men who fought at Dunkirk and North Africa, and on the D-Day beaches.
  • The RAF fighter aces; the sailors who served in U-boat-infested seas.
  • The Irish Jews who fought to defeat the Nazis and the Final Solution.
  • The Irishman who served alongside Easy Company of the US 101st Airborne Division, immortalised in Stephen Ambrose's Band of Brothers, and those of the United States Marine Corps.
  • The many who endured the horrific POW camps and bore witness to the Nagasaki atomic bomb.
  • The Irishman who earned the last Victoria Cross of the war.
