This book provides an original assessment of the First World War in Ireland and its consequences, the key to understanding the complexities of the Irish nation today. Thomas Hennessey explores how the War transformed the nature of the Irish and Ulster questions from devolved self-government within the UK to a free Irish republic outside the British Empire, considering such influential figures as de Valera and Michael Collins, and issues such as conscription. He examines both this process of re-evaluation, and the vital question of the consequences for Northern Ireland today.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Hennessey is to be commended for this excellent book."
-"The American Historical Review
"Thomas Hennessey has written a perceptive and subtle analysis of the reactions of the unionist and nationalist communities to World War I and how those responses affected their relations with Great Britain and each other. Hennessey's book is a major contribution to both the literature of Irish partition and the rapidly expanding field of British studies."
-John Kendle, University of Manitoba
"A valuable contribution to the literature of Ireland, the Great War and the partial break-up of the United Kingdom. It is calmly argued, with a remarkable degree of impartiality....and has indeed many later and contemporary resonances."
-D. George Boyce, University of Wales, Swansea
"Hennessey explains the civil war that followed more convincingly than simply seeing the Easter Rebellion and the Irish Free State as cause and effect. Best suited to academic collections."
-"Library Journal, Nov 1, 1998
