Michael Collins Man Who Won The War Dwyer, T. Ryle

ISBN: 9781856356251

Revised and Updated. From the bestselling author of The Squad comes the story of a charismatic rebel who undermined the British government and inspired Irish people to seek independence. 


In this completely revised and updated book, T. Ryle Dwyer offers a fresh perspective on Collins activities. With new information about his role in organising 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 Féin election victory of 1918 and put structure on the organisation 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.
