Osprey Campaign 180 : Easter Rising 1916 : Birth of the Irish Republic

When the outbreak of World War I delayed home rule for Ireland, a faction of Irish nationalists decided to take direct action. On Easter Monday 1916, a rebellion was launched from the steps of the Dublin General Post Office and the existence of an Irish Republic proclaimed. The British response was a military one and they drove the rebels back in violent street fighting until they surrendered on 29 April. The leaders of the rising were tried by court martial, 15 of them were summarily executed and a further 3,500 'sympathizers' imprisoned. This book covers this important milestone in Anglo-Irish history in detail, examining the politics behind the Easter Rising and the tactics employed to counter it. Text by Michael McNally with illustrations by Peter Dennis.
