On Easter Monday 1916 Commandant Edward Daly commanding the 1st Battalion of the Irish Volunteers occupied the Four Courts and the surrounding area.
Ensconced in a labyrinth of streets, alleyways and tenement buildings, Daly and his unit created a killing ground that would witness some of the fiercest fighting of the 1916 Rising.
Surrounded and outgunned, the Volunteers held their positions and were the last Battalion of the Rising to surrender.
Confronted by such a determined foe, British military forces were forced to rethink their strategies in order to regain control of the second city of the empire.
Crossfire is the true story of one of the bloodiest engagements against crown forces in Dublin city during the 1916 Rising.
This book examines the battles that were fought in and around the Four Courts area of Dublin city and the atrocities that were uncovered on North King Street as the Rising came to an end.

From the Author:

This is the true story of a group of men and women that fought for Irish independence during Easter week 1916. The military aspects of the Rising are often overlooked and  this book will explain the complex battles that took place in the courts area during the 1916 Rising.
Please enjoy my work on this epic yet tragic event in Irish history.

From the Back Cover:

Crossfire The Battle of the Four Courts, 1916The exciting military history of one of the toughest fights of the 1916 Rising.
The 1916 Rising was about much, much more than the GPO. Around the city, many volunteers and British soldiers were killed and wounded fighting in vicious urban warfare. One of the many forgotten struggles centred on North King Street and the Four Courts and, in this brilliant new book, Paul O'Brien revisits that conflict.
Delving deep into the archives and the testimony of those involved, Crossfire
brings to life a desperate struggle between mismatched forces, one that forced rebels to learn new ways of fighting on the cuff.
This gripping military history book is in turn exciting and tragic and does more than many books to expose the often forgotten stories of the 1916 Rising.
