Synopsis

In this completely revised and updated book, T. Ryle Dwyer, offers a fresh perspective on Collins' activities. With new information about his role in organizing the IRB in London in his youth right through to his death in 1922, Dwyer's analysis supports the case for Collins as the chief architect of the Irish victory over the British Empire.Michael Collins co-ordinated the sweeping Sinn Fein election victory of 1918 and put structure on the organization of the IRA. He was the prototype of the urban terrorist and the architect of the war against the Black and Tans. While many have questioned whether Collins ever fired a shot at an enemy of Ireland, he did order the deaths of people standing in his way, and he even advocated kidnapping a US President.

T. Ryle Dwyer is a historian and journalist. He took his PhD at the University of North Texas and lives in County Kerry. He has written many books, notably on the period of the War of Independence and the Civil War, and on Eamon de Valera and Michael Collins. He is also an expert on relations between Ireland and the Allies during the Second World War. He is also the author of The Squad, 'I Signed My Death Warrant' and 'Tans, Terror and Troubles: Kerry's Real Fighting Story', all published by Mercier Press.
