Easter 1916: The Irish Rebellion

by Charles Townshend - £10.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141982472 | ISBN 10: 0141982470

Ireland's Easter Rising of 1916 transformed millions of lives and created its own powerful mythology. This remarkable book vividly recreates this extraordinary time when, as Irish insurgents rose up and occupied Dublin, as British artillery retaliated ferociously, as the last haggard rebels surrendered and their leaders were shot, Ireland was launched into a new world.
 
Scraping away layer upon layer of myth, Easter 1916 brings to life the group of remarkable men and women - from eloquent intellectual Patrick Pearse to revolutionary socialist James Connolly - whose actions changed their nation for ever.

"Authoritative and compelling"
(Irish Times)
"Wonderfully readable, especially the account of the week's fighting. The author has devoted his life to the study of Irish history and this huge work is the pinnacle of his labours"
(Guardian)
