5.0 out of 5 stars A real, on-the-ground account of the 1916 Rising and a revelation of an inspiring leader, 6 Jun. 2013
By 
Mary Hatch "Mary Monks" (Delta., British Columbia Canada) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This book brought me right into the 1916 Rising (as no book before it has done) in a way that was very real and personal -- not in a highly dramatic fashion, but featuring real, flesh and blood people in a situation that was extraordinary. I felt that I was there, in those streets where my own family members lived and worked, and I probably thought for the first time about how these events must have shaken their world and changed their lives.

As well, and above all, it painted a picture of a seemingly unexceptional man who, suddenly finding himself in an exceptional situation, became an inspirational and noble leader, and of the inspiring family he came from.

I look forward with eager anticipation to the author's next book in this series about another family member, Tom Clarke.
