    Product Description

    Learn about the history of the Irish Republican Army with iMinds insightful knowledge series.

    Much like the history of its homeland, the Irish Republican Army, or IRA, is complex and contested. Formed as a resistance movement during World War One, the IRA has since undergone several splits and reinventions. There are no fewer than five groups who identify themselves as the IRA, all of which can trace their beginnings to the original resistance movement. Despite their differences, the various IRA groups have at least a common goal: the unification of Ireland and an end to occupation of Northern Ireland by the United Kingdom.
    The IRA started out of a desire within Ireland for self-administration at the beginning of the 20th century. In 1914, the British Parliament passed an act that sought to provide “Home Rule” for Ireland as part of the United Kingdom. But the onset of World War One delayed implementation of the act, and the Home Rule outlined by the act was limited, causing heated debate amongst the Irish. Frustration of Irish nationalists provoked a full-scale rebellion in April 1916. This insurrection would become known as the Easter Rising.

    iMinds brings targeted knowledge to your eReading device with short information segments to whet your mental appetite and broaden your mind.

    1.0 out of 5 stars dont buy 15 Mar 2011

    paid 70pence for this and was looking forward to a good read. Read it in five minutes, so I checked the write up again and found it was a very short read. It told me nothing that I did not already know. Don't buy, download or buy a detailed book which will cover this.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Irish Republican Army ( Crime,War & Conflict ) 28 Jun 2012
    Verified Purchase
    I bought this Kindle edition thinking it would be a good afternoons read but all I got was less than 5 minutes of reading.
    I though it was a sample at first but no.

    This "Book" would fit into 2 A4 size sheets easly.

    I believe that Amazon should refund all the people who bough this "BooK".

    The story was the most rubbish I have ever read about the Irish conflict.

    I would advise anyone who is thinking of buying this so called "Book"to stay well clear

    Given the capacity of the book it's.necessary to skip so much and there are some parts that are more myth than reality. For a stranger to Irish history it's at least a starting price.
