Julia Eichenberg's chapter analyses the continuation of violence in Ireland and Poland after the end of the Great War. In both countries, the postwar conflict was dominated by irregular warfare. The genesis of paramilitary formations in Poland and Ireland shows a radicalization of independence movements, accelerated by the political disintegration of the former regimes. Distinctions between civilians and the military were eroded in the face of guerrilla warfare and ethnic, religious and ideologically motivated violence.
