Easter Rising 1916 :The Irish Rebellion by Charles Townsend


The Easter Rising of 1916 was the most significant event in modern Irish history. This is an excellent and objective history of the events of the Rising, with a detailed analysis of the background, the key personalities and the evolution of the main ideas of the time, which I found fascinating. Townshend meticulously assesses the value and truthfulness of various sources he cites, and the confusing picture he paints of the planning of the Rising reflects the realities of the time. The last chapter is an insightful analysis of the legacy of the Rising and the disputes over its meaning by later generations, as well as an attempt to put it in an international context.
