Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » No one with any interest in the modern history of Ireland could do better than picking up this book. First published in 1999, Sutton have republished this excellent retelling of the Dublin rebellion of Easter 1916. At a time when the world was at war and British troops bogged down in France, approximately 1500 Irish men and women rose up in a vain attempt to seize Dublin and force the British out of Ireland. Their ultimate aim was to create an independent Republic of Ireland. Doomed to failure from the beginning, fighting amongst themselves before they took on the British army, these Irish men and women took strategic areas of Dublin and spent the holiest week in the Catholic year defending their territory. The week ended with most of Dublin north of the Liffy in flames and a good many dead. Reading in parts like the best adventure novel, Foy and Barton recount the events of that week and its aftermath, using diaries and eyewitness accounts from both sides. From the confused planning to the bloody end, voices come alive in the retelling of the most significant week in modern Irish history. (Kirkus UK)
