Overview
Coogan has written an outstanding account...enhanced by well-chosen historic photographs, maps and documents."--"Celtic Connection"
On April 14, 1916, it all began--and 6 short but bloody days later, true Irish independence emerged from the ruins. Coogan's outstanding account of this seminal event provides a testament to a turning point in Irish history and to those who perished in the struggle. Born of the thwarted, democratically expressed desire for Home Rule--as well as political confusion--the Easter Uprising started when rebels seized a number of strong points in Dublin. The subsequent executions of the leaders, along with the arrest, court-martial, and detention of 3500 people, won the insurgents sympathy and resulted in an overwhelming desire for freedom among the public.
