How much this owed to Britain's military resolve or to the political skills of Eamon de Valera is a key question which this new book will explore.

The Second World War was the most violent and globally shattering event in history

This included, in the case of Nazi Germany, policies that not only discriminated against individuals who did not conform to a twisted notion of racial purity, but also sponsored the slaughter of many – not least approximately 6 million Jews – in work and death camps.
