Macready was a senior British Army officer who saw active service in the Second Boer War and who held senior staff appointments in the First World War. The book's principal interest, however, lies in the fact that he was the last British military commander in Ireland prior to independence. He was sent to command British troops in Ireland in April 1920 to carry out a counter-insurgency role against the Irish Republican Army in the Irish War of Independence. He had already expressed his view of Ireland in writing as follows: "I loathe the country--and its people with a depth deeper than the sea and more violent than that which I feel against the Boche." He believed that Ireland could be suppressed in the Summer of 1921 but following instructions from his political masters negotiated a truce in July 1921 and withdrew his troops form Ireland the following year.
