Subtitled, "The Fight For Irish Independence, 1918-1923". A gripping narrative of the most critical years in modern Ireland's history. From the author of "Easter 1916".
The protracted, terrible fight for independence pitted the Irish against the British and the Irish against other Irish. It was both a physical battle of shocking violence against a regime increasingly seen as alien and unacceptable and an intellectual battle for a new sort of country. This title deals with this topic.
