The period from 1913 to 1923 in Ireland's history of rebellion is undoubtedly the most significant. The period takes in the revival of interest in all things Irish around 1913, the heroic Easter Rising of 1916, the bloody War of Independence 1919-1921, and the bitter Civil War of 1922-1923. Here for the first time are images of those episodes, the people, the places, city and country, with insightful commentary describing the context of each photograph. This book gives the reader glimpses of this exciting time in Ireland through contemporary photographs.
