Against these British forces stood the Irish Republican Army whose Flying Colums never exceeded 310 riflemen in the whole of the County of Cork, men moreover with "no experience of war,untrained in the use of arms, with no tactical training, practically unarmed. This is the extraordinary story of the fght between those two unequal forces, which ended in the withdrawl of the British from 26 counties. In particular it is the story of the West Cork Flying Column under Tom Barry, it's commander of genius.
