In the last episode we look at the Irish approach to the war in quite broad strokes. Today we dive into the specifics, detailing a raid on a group of RIC men guarding a bread lorry and then looking at the propaganda battle that followed. A propaganda battle focused on one 18 year old medical student — Kevin Barry.
