‘We had met people very different from ourselves’

(p.236) Afterword
Culture, Northern Ireland, and the Second World War

Guy Woodward

Oxford University Press

Since the events of the late 1960s and the escalation of political violence throughout the 1970s and 80s, the significance of the Second World War to the social, political, and cultural life of Northern Ireland has become less and less apparent. This brief afterword argues that it is no longer possible or credible to ignore the impact of the war on the course of twentieth-century Irish history, north or south of the border. It explores the various echoes detected by writers between Northern Ireland’s experiences of the war and of the Troubles, and proposes that the area of study opened up by this book deserves further cultural and sociological investigation.
