'Dalton's experiences in 1922, however, when he was just 24,were only one chapter of a remarkable life. It's all faithfully recorded and explained in Seán Boyne s fine book, which does justice to a long and interesting career and is admirably devoid of jargon and judgment, and driven by evidence rather than sentiment, nostalgia or hero worship.' - --Diarmaid Ferriter reviewing for The Irish Times
'The tone used by veteran journalist Sean Boyne is informative in style, with little by way of writerly flourish or commentary; just the facts. But they are dynamic facts and the story unfolds easily.' - --Katy Hayes reviewing for The Sunday Times
