Nonsense, the British sent in token forces, imagine the fool strength of the British Army in Ireland.We beat the brits militarily. London had the aim of keeping Ireland inside the UK with a Scottish style devolved administration in Dublin. That failed and a free Ireland was achieved. We won the war.
And what war was won? Have you forgotten Ireland was part of the UK at the time, Irish soldiers battled with Irish rebels, the rebels won independence from the UK, but that was down to politics not war.
