Jennifer, Dan Breen also wrote a book - it's called 'My Fight for Irish Freedom'and should still be in print in Ireland. Any History of modern Ireland will help, also Calton Younger's 'Ireland's Civil War' and any biography of Michael Collins, who was the brain behind the guerilla war against the Black and Tans. However, the idea of the 'flying column' came, I believe, from Tom Barry (?) who commanded the first one and has also written a book about their exploits. (I may be behind the times, but I still prefer books for reference. I can't, after all, take my computer to bed with me!)- Susanne
