Evidence On Conditions In Ireland: As Presented To The American Commission On Conditions In Ireland: Volume 1 (introduction And First And Second Hearings)

Coyle, Albert
In late 1920 and early 1921, eye witnesses to the violence of the War of Independence in Ireland gave testimonies to public sessions of an American Commission of Inquiry into Conditions in Ireland sitting in Washington DC. The inquiry held six sets of hearings, with some individuals travelling from Ireland specifically to give evidence. The reports attracted international attention at a crucial phase in the attempts to negotiate a settlement to the war. The official reporter to the Commission, Albert Coyle, published over eleven hundred pages of testimonies in 1921 providing a remarkable set of first hand accounts of the violence.These are published here in three volumes: Volume 1 contains the original introduction and the evidence from the first and second hearings; Volume 2 the evidence from the third and fourth hearings; Volume 3: the evidence from the fifth and sixth hearings and an index covering all three volumes.
