9781848892149: According to Their Lights: Stories of Irishman in the British Army, Easter 1916

A unique history of the Irishmen who fought for the English in Ireland's April 1916 Easter Rising. History remembers the Rising as Irish rebel against English soldier, but the truth is more complicated. Thousands of British army soldiers in the Rising were Irishmen. Many enlisted to fight for Irish Home Rule or Ulster Unionism, to find adventure or escape from poverty. None imagined they would find themselves on the streets of Dublin, killing - and being killed by - fellow Irishmen. Forty-one Irishmen in the British army died in action during the Rising, 106 were wounded. These men became a forgotten part of their country's history. ""These men became a forgotten part of their country's history until their stories were told in this fascinating book.""--Irish Gazette ""In Neil Richardson's utterly absorbing new book he looks at the Irishmen who fought for the English in Ireland's April 1916 Easter Rising, where an exquisitely complicated clash of allegiances quickly came into play.""--Irish Voice
