Summary, etc.: "Between 1913 and 1923, Ireland was the scene of a complex and bloody struggle, which in the space of a decade created martyrs, heroes, and a long legacy of bitterness. Against the backdrop of World War I, Irish nationalists fought the British for independence, before battling their former comrades for its future. From the failed Dublin insurrection launched on Easter Monday 1916, to the Irish Free State's battle against republican forces in early 1920s, the war for Ireland encompassed iconic revolts, guerrilla struggles and hard urban warfare. Fully illustrated with rare photography, contemporary paintings and digital maps, this engaging account details the conflict from the first rebellion to the final, uneasy peace"--Fly leaf.
