#OnThisDay 1939 De Valera declares Ireland would be neutral during WW2. The conflict would be known in Ireland as ‘The Emergency’. Of course, Ireland was not neutral in the strictest sense but rather “neutral, but on the Allies’ side”.
I'm David, I'm from Ireland. I am an avid fan of history. I have my B.A. in History, my M.A. in Military History and Strategic Studies,a Post Qualification Diploma in History and I've been teaching History for five years now.
I wanted to create a podcast that examines, in great detail, major Irish battles and battles allover the world in various wars that Irish people played a significant part in.
Hope you enjoy.
