Gemma Clark Social History
This is an important contribution to the historiography of the War of Independence and the Civil War. The author identified the gap in that historiography and has filled it with an original, meticulously researched and well-presented volume... it is essential reading.
Patrick McCarthy The Irish Sword
The IRA in Britain is detailed, comprehensive and well structured. Noonan has drawn effectively on recently available digital archives, which permit the marshalling of 'new' or at least hitherto inaccessible information.
Ruan O'Donnell History Ireland
Gerard Noonan’s new book is a welcome addition to the growing historiography of modern Ireland, which places the Irish diaspora at the centre of analysis….This book deserves commendation for its depth of research and for its novel approach to integrating Irish and British history in a critical period.
Twentieth Century British History, Vol 26
Gerard Noonan's book is an outstanding, definitive analysis of an under-researched topic - the role of the IRA in Britain during the crucial periods of the partition of Ireland, War of Independence and republican split. Drawing upon exhaustive, highly original research, Noonan charts a very wide range of IRA activity in England, Scotland and Wales in support of the battles 'across the water'. The book is essential reading for any scholar of the period.
University of Liverpool
