A balanced review,
This review is from: Easter Rising 1916: Birth of the Irish Republic (Campaign) (Paperback)
The author has done well in this book to balance the still emotive subject of Ireland's recent history,bringing out various elements of the events that played themselves out in 1916 of which I was entirely unaware, and which brought a 'new' International view to the subject.
Sometimes I did have the impression that there was an awful lot more to the story than the author was able to discuss in this book given it's relatively slim size, especially the whole subject of German involvement and a possible second front for the British to fight on in 1916, and I'd certainly like to see him write a more substantial volume sometime.
