"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

Book by Coogan Tim Pat Morrison George

Reseña del editor:

An examination of five years in the birth of a nation - from the break-up of the Irish parliament into pro- and anti-treaty factions in the summer of 1921 to the aftermath of the bloody fighting in 1924 - preserved by the camera lens. George Morrison shows the photographs he has amassed - many restored to enhance detail - in context, recording who photographed them, when, and for what purpose. Tim Pat Coogan provides a text which sets the events of the Civil War in their chronological order. The book includes a chapter on propaganda photography.
