Overview

Lorcan Collins, an acknowledged expert on the subject and founder of the 1916 Rebellion Walking Tour, decided that it was time to put together a truthful and factually correct reference book in one handy volume. 1916: The Rising Handbook offers bite-sized details about the organizations involved in the Rising, the positions occupied during Easter week, the weapons the rebels and army used, the documents that were passed around, and the speeches that were given. It details the women who came out to fight and profiles the sixteen executed leaders, as well as looking at the rebellion outside of Dublin. It also utilizes three different resources to give the most comprehensive list yet of all of those involved in the Rising. "Collins' book is nothing less than a total immersion in the era, introducing us to its principle players and their often conflicting politics. . . One of the most comprehensive introductions to the revolution you could ever ask for."--Irish Voice
