This fascinating history tells the full story of the battle for Cork for the first time, showing all the chaos, bravery, and misery of the largest engagement of the Irish Civil War and the final defeat of Republican Cork. It describes the three days of stubborn fighting that was required for the National Army to secure the city. The retreating IRA left destruction in their wake, setting the stage for Michael Collins' fatal final visit to his home county. ""This outstanding book tries to explain the puzzling collapse of anti-treaty forces in their stronghold, Cork City.""-Irish American News
