Product description

In May 1798, a hundred thousand peasants rose in revolt against the British Government in Ireland. By the time the revolt had been put down four months later, thirty thousand dead were literally rotting in heaps in a smoking and desolate countryside. Yet it was not a schoolroom story of the heroic oppressed rising against the brutal oppressor, but the result of a complex, tragic, often absurd, and sometimes heroic interplay between different groups, strikingly reminiscent of colonial conflicts of the present day.
