Reseña del editor:

This is an illustrated history of Collins Barracks, Cork as seen through the eyes of those stationed there. The book includes photographs which, along with the text, demonstrate the influence "The Barracks" had on Cork. It gies readers an appreciation of two centuries of soldiering, focusing on the "Cork" solidier and his contribution to Cork's modern identity. The years of British occupation are covered, including famous personalities who served in the barracks; the fight for freedom is described, including the role of the British garrison in the barracks; a detailed description of the Dillons Cross ambush and the attempt to kidnap General Strickland is provided; the handover of the barracks, including the era of the Emergency, and 1950s, 60s, right up to the present. Detailed appendices cover personnel.
