Description - Sean Tracy and the Tan War by Joe Ambrose

This is a ground breaking new book that looks back on Ireland's struggle for freedom with a refreshingly new perspective and attitude. This is a journey into a turbulent period in Ireland's past - the past of charismatic guerrilla leader Sean Treacy, Tipperary's Flying Columns and the horrors of Croke Park's 'Bloody Sunday'. Tipperary's role in the War of Independence has been greatly underplayed and this book analyses the main events and personalities of the time. The Tan War in Tipp takes a contemporary look at a time in our history that defined a nation.
