Michael Collins and the Troubles: The Struggle for Irish Freedom 1912-1922

by Ulick O'Connor - £7.99  Mainstream Publishing (2001)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781840184273 | ISBN 10: 1840184272

When Asquith introduced his bill for Home Rule for Ireland in 1912, he sparked a decade of turbulence and violence for Ireland and her people. Michael Collins played a crucial role in rekindling Ireland's aspirations for freedom. A leading figure in the nation's bitter and bloody resistance to British Rule, he played a key part in reshaping Ireland's history as we know it today.
 
Ulick O'Connor includes valuable new information about the secret war against England and provides a fresh and highly dramatic account of Ireland's fight for freedom. Using crucial material from the archives of General Richard Mulcahy, Collins's Chief of Staff, as well as personal interviews with Mulcahy, Eamon de Valera, and many other leading figures, Michael Collins and the Troubles is a vivid and often horrifying account of a turning point in Irish history, the consequences of which are still felt today.

"An extraordinary pageant... Imaginatively and brilliantly written."
(Irish Times)
