I was expecting a book about Ireland's fight for freedom against the English in 1920. This "free" volume is in german and is terribly chopped up. There was no description advisong of this. A complete waste of time.

The brutality of the British against the Irish makes my heart sink seeing they where an unarmed people in their own country being raped and exploited by a ruthless colonial power. Bloody Sunday seemed to be the climax of reactionary violence strategically aimed at the ultimate apparatus of the British to ensure the complete subjection of the Irish people on their own soil. I will not consider the blood of the agents and black and tans or the RIC to be worthy of mention for sympathy or empathy these people in the name of an unjust empire sought to oppress defenseless people with the most cowardly use of force against civilians to retaliate against the IRA who in my opinion used the only tool available to them to reason with the unreasonable British for their independence on their own soil. Now the word violence implies something less than honorable being deployed to achieve a said goal. I don't agree with this in the face of a repressive system established and maintained by the same violence the British found repulsive when applied against them to the degree necessary to gain freedom!!!! The world of history has a rich history of land transfers because of the violence of war how can we justify the mighty and vilify the weak for applying the most respected form of communication on the planet earth. I was mortified by the tactics of the British on behalf of their unjust occupation of Ireland and my heart was with the Spirit of the men who dared to engage the monster at the cost of their life and freedom to pursue liberty not just for themselves but for their countrymen what a daunting task for a mouse to engage a lion and bring him to a compromise in the mouse's favor. I really enjoyed the book I could not put it down once I picked it up enjoy.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
