Documents the events of the Civil War in Kerry during the late summer of 1922.

Follows the military course of the Civil War in Kerry in August and September 1922, focusing on specific engagements and tactics.

Because of the defence line of the 'Munster Republic' overland during the Civil War, the Free State forces, under Emmet Dalton, carried out an innovative and successful invasion on Kerry from the sea.

This caught the republican forces almost completely by surprise and they were overwhelmed and defeated.

This work brings the Civil War up to the end of the first phase of the campaign for the Provisional Government in Kerry, when Free State victory seemed assured, and before the Republican response to their predicament.

Part of a ten part series on the Military History of Ireland including The Battle for Limerick City, The Battle for Dublin, The Battle of Kilmallock, The Kerry Landings, The Battle for Waterford, The Personalities of the Irish Civil War and The Weapons of the Irish Civil War.
