Dispossessed and oppressed for so long, it is no surprise many Irish ended up fighting in other people's wars. For many men a career as a soldier was the last hope for a better life and the great armies have always been a home to those on the bottom rungs of society. Courage and Conflict tells of extraordinary people and events, revolutionaries, inventors, soldiers, sailors, and mutineers. These stories provide a glimpse of Irish history intersecting with that of other peoples and countries. As much of the warfare conducted by the Irish has been fought abroad, these stories are also American, British, Mexican, Italian, Native American, African, and Indian. Courage and Conflict is an exciting and eclectic mix. ""This wonderful book tells of Irish brains, bravery, and boldness.""-Irish American News.
