    1. One day as I was strolling through the used history book section of our local entertainment store, I came across Ireland's Unfinished Revolution: An Oral History (previously titled 'Curious Journey: An Oral History of Ireland's Unfinished Revolution'). It stood out because there are not many Irish history books to be found in my town. I took a look at it and was interested. It contained the first-hand experiences of several prominent participants in Ireland's Anglo-Irish War of 1916-1921 and Civ [...]

    2. I stumbled upon this book in my favorite used bookstore in Philly--A House of Our Own, near the Penn campus--and am surprised that it's not more well-known than it apparently is (or was to me, at least.) It weaves together an overview of the forces and events that produced and followed the 1916 Easter Rising through the end of the Irish Civil War, the personal experiences of nine people (including two women, a group often overlooked in accounts by the time this one was published in 1982), and a [...]

    3. This is unlike other history books in that it was originally meant to be a documentary for British television. In 1976 the author interviewed 9 Irish particpants in the Easter Rising, the Anglo-Irish War and/or the Civil War. Some of them are well known to any Irish history buff (Tom Barry), some you may never have heard of. I can only say it was an honour to read the words of these 9 amazing men and women.

    4. A very good book seen through the eyes of different protagonists involved in the easter rising. outstanding foreward by Kenneth Griffiths

    5. Captivating look at Irish history from multiple first-person perspectives. A bit confusing at times, but that's likely due to the fact that these interviews were done with the idea that they'd be turned into a documentary, not a book.

    6. Interviews of nine former IRA members about their experiences from 1919-1922, primarily. Michael Collins, Lloyd George, De Valera. Republicans vs. Free State: the real tragedy of Irish history was the unnecessary civil war. British imperialism, divide and rule. Definite sympathetic bias for republicans.
