Descripción

"The Irish Civil War began on the 28 June 1922 and ended on the 24 May 1923. The precipitating factor was the ratification of the treaty between Great Britain and the fledgling Irish state which called for an oath of allegiance to the king, a governor general appointed by the crown and the partition of six counties in Northern Ireland. Thiose who believed this was the best that could be achieved were suddenly pitched against those who bel;ieved that after years of bloody fighting this was anathema.In this remarkable book Tim Pat Coogan has written an account of the origins and course of the war and George Morrison has assembled an unrivalled pictorial record of the personalities and events of those years and written the accompanying captions. The result is not only an important history of the period but also a testament to men and women of courage and conviction prepared to devote their lives to what they believed to be right; it is also a grim reminder of the excesses of political zeal: the bloodshed and appalling brutality which came to haunt succeeding generations." This book has 288 pages and is profusely illustrated. N° de ref. de la librería 062501

Sinopsis:

It began in June, 1922, with the ratification of a treaty between Great Britain and the fledgling Irish state that called for an oath of allegiance to the king, a governor general appointed by the crown, and the partition of six counties in Northern Ireland. And during the eleven months the conflict lasted, brother fought against brother, sundering families for generations, and opening a divide in the country's politics that only now is beginning to fade. This unrivaled pictorial record and remarkable history of the war's passage pays poignant testimony to the courageous men and women prepared to fight to the death for what they believed morally right. It also serves as a sober reminder of the excesses of political zeal and how they came to haunt future generations.
