The battle for Irish Independence was not one conflict, but a series of bloody struggles that stretched over a decade. In 1912, Britain passed a law that would bring 'Home Rule' to Ireland. However, with the outbreak of World War I, this law was suspended eventually leading to the Easter Rising and the deadly battle in the streets of Dublin. The heavy-handed nature of the British response to the Rising turned much of the Irish population against Britain. Membership in and support for groups such as the Irish Republican Army and Sinn Fein swelled. With the aftermath of this war resulting in the Partition of Ireland in 1921 with the south as a dominion of the British crown, the conflict changed in nature, becoming a true civil war between those who accepted the compromise and those who wanted full independence. Backed with numerous photographs and detailed maps, Osprey Publishing presents this complex struggle for Irish Independence in a concise and highly readable format.
