Another sad chapter in the history of Ireland was the uprising against the British occupiers in 1789. This involved about 100,000 peasants rebelling to establish a republic based on the French example. It was an idealistic effort, one doomed to failure.The rebellion took only four months to suppress, cost about 30,000 lives, was marked by excesses and savagery with no gain for the proponents of a republic. While much has been written and recorded about historic, and recent, Irish problems, including the Great Famine, the 1798 rebellioin was comparatively less well--documented until this mammoth history was compiled by the author, whose immaculate and extensive researche revealed much that was new about this aspect of the Irish Troubles. A monumental work. First edition of 1969. 416 pages including bibliography, notes and index, 30 b/w illustrations, mainly art, five maps plus map e/papers. Green hard covers with gilt spine titles VG with few small marks, light bruising spine base, bumped corners, previous owner stamp top corner FFEP, text block otherwise excellent.

Acerca de


(This classic account of the great Irish rebellion of 1798 remains the only full-scale history of that tragic event. As relevant today as it was when first published in 1969.
In 1798 they had come out of their mountains, forests and farmsteads in amazing numbers, armed mostly with primitive weapons, to confront the artillery, cavalry and guns of a modern state and its settler militia. Their courage was often remarked by the British military who opposed them and they died in their thousands)

Reseña del editor:

This classic account of the great Irish rebellion of 1798 remains the only full-scale history of that tragic event. As relevant today as it was when first published in 1969, THE YEAR OF LIBERTY is now reissued with the addition of a chronology and a glossary of terms.
