Description
The Ulster Volunteer Force was established in January 1913 as a militant expression of Ulster Unionist opposition to the Third Home Rule Bill. This book provides the first comprehensive study of the UVF in this period, considering its ideologies, the composition of its officer corps, regional recruiting differences and the militia’s arming and equipping. It demonstrates that the UVF was quite capable of seizing control of Ulster and installing the Ulster Provisional Government in the event of Home Rule being implemented in 1914.
