Hardback with dustjacket. First published in the UK in 2002 by
"Redcoat Publishing". Printer N/K. Written by David Truesdale.
'Brotherhood of the Cauldron' tells the story of some 300 men who served in or
with the Division during WWII. They came from all counties of Ireland, both
'loyal' north & 'neutral' south, many being awarded decorations for bravery,
including one Victoria Cross. More than 200 photographs accompany the text,
some will be familiar to students of airborne operations, but others are
published for the first time, being reproduced from old newspaper cuttings
or well-worn snapshots.
David Truesdale retired in 1998 and since then has produced four books on
military history as well as writing for films and television. He is currently
researching material for a history of the 4th Parachute Brigade.
