9780717135424: A Terrible Beauty: An Illustrated History of Irish Battles

The history of Ireland has been punctuated by many significant battles. As well as describing the action of each battle, Martin Marix Evans places it in its historical, strategic and military context. Each battle scene is viewed in its modern context through the lens of David Lyons. Organised regionally, the author stresses the strategic significance of each region and deals chronologically with the most significant battles that took place in each. In all, the book covers over 1,000 years of military activity in Ireland, from the Battle of Clontarf (1014), which ended the dream of a united Gaelic kingdom, to the battles of the War of Independence (1921) which led to the creation of an independent Irish state for the first time in a millennium. This outstanding book is a reminder of the tragedy of war and the beauty of the landscape in which it is fought.
