This case study is a prescribed documents course for the 2008 and 2009 exams. With this in mind the unit examines different aspects of the war through the medium of primary documents. However there are also timelines and overviews of the main aspects of the war. Each primary document will have questions based on the different question types found on the Leaving Cert. These questions are designed for both higher and ordinary level students. Dealing with each section will take 30 – 40 minutes: allowing students to read or listen to the sources and answer the questions
