Overview

More than any other book of the period, On Another Man's Wound captures the feel of Ireland—the way people lived, their attitudes and beliefs—and paints brilliant cameo sketches of the great personalities of the Rising and the War.

As the fight progressed his feelings changed and he joined the Irish Republican Army.
