My mother turned me on to this book and i'm very happy she did. I like history and love to get the accounts of things. However it did occur to me i didn't really get Irelands history. As i asked around it seemed that noone was really very clear or straight on Ireland's history. This book was very accurate and complete. It covered it all but did so in a way that flowed. It would probably be classified more along the lines of a text book but it didn't read like one. I do have to say though if you just read the last few pages it pretty much tells you all you need to know. Who and what part of ireland is on what side and why they, basically, are fighting. I came away much more educated but i don't think it will ever be clear.

I read this book about 6 years ago. I seem to remember it being fairly dry. I can say that because I honestly don't remember a lot of it. I do remember some of the Michael Collins bits because I read this right after watching the movie with Liam Neeson. Helps to read if it is winter, you have a fire, and a Guineess.
