The Bombing of Dublin's North Strand, 1941 synopsis
On a fantastic star night, four bombs fell, the latest and most devastating at 2:05 am on May 31. There was a loud explosion and the ground was cut off.
I felt tremors in far places like Enniskerry and Mullingar. There was panic and rush in the "city of fear." The stunning destruction of houses and shops in North Strand to a large extent, 2,250 buildings in the city were damaged by bombs, more than 40 people were killed, about 100 seriously injured, and many wounded.
Hospitals and clinics are filled within hours. Nearly 2,000 people have become homeless.
It will then be determined that in terms of destructive performance, the brutal "ideal bomb" has done so. For a two-thirds century, no book has been written on the Herald Herald's "Night of Terror".
Later called "Seismic Event" in the history of Dublin. Finally, near the end of the century, the Irish Military Archive and the Dublin City Archives have declassified their documents on the bombing - some 60-year-old "secret".
Finally, the theories and myths that have long surrounded the mysterious event can be seen in the light of the real evidence. But the heart of a book about a human tragedy is the oral testimony of survivors, rescuers and observers who provide accounts of eyewitnesses.
This is a social history recounted by the enormous human drama. Narrated on the ground of Nakba, terrorism, heroism and survival.
The mystery lingers long afterwards. This is the untold story of a major historical event and a long-standing human tragedy..
