Taking readers beyond the narrow focus other histories put on Michael Collins, this book recreates the entire course of the war that created modern-day Ireland -- from the division of the Irish parliament in the summer of 1921 to the aftermath of the bloody fighting in 1924. Renowned filmmaker George Morrison displays period, many the hundreds of photographs he's amassed from the restored to enhance their details. Popular journalist and historian Tim Pat Coogan adds lively commentary to the events depicted.
