In December 1920, Ireland's War of Independence hung in the balance. The response of the government at Westminster was a declaration of martial law in the south and west of Ireland.

The response of the government at Westminster to Ireland's War of Independence in December 1920 was to impose martial law in the south and west of Ireland.

The courts and civil authorities were then placed under the control of the army, and a number of non-capital charges were converted into offenses punishable by death. This book provides a full account of the historical context and a legal justification for martial law asserted by the government of Lloyd George.

The legal, moral, and constitutional issues are examined, along with an analysis of the circumstances of the conflict and the policy decisions which led to the imposition of martial law.
