In this book, Tom Barry describes the setting up of the West Cork Flying Column, a small group of severely disciplined yet extremely dedicated group of volunteers. Their paramount objective was merely to exist; to strike when conditions were favorable and to avoid disaster at all costs.

Guerilla Days in Ireland is the extraordinary story of the fight between two unequal forces, which ended in the withdrawal of the British from twenty-six counties.

Seven weeks before the truce to the Anglo-Irish War of July, 1921, the British presence in County Cork consisted of 8,800 front line infantry troops, 1,150 Black & Tan soldiers, 540 Auxiliaries, 2,080 machine gun corps, artillery and other units; a total of over 12,500 men.

Against these British forces stood the Irish Republican Army whose Flying Columns never exceeded 310 riflemen in the whole of County Cork.
