Review:

Peter Hart is a fine historian..Mick is a significant book -- Mary Kenny, Literary Review

Book Description:

Few people have had as profound an impact on their countryís history in so short a time as Michael Collins had on twentieth-century Ireland. Dead at thirty-one, assassinated by a compatriot, he had already fought in the Easter Rising, been elected to four different parliaments, organized the IRA and smuggled in its arms, launched its guerrilla war, beat British intelligence at its own game, financed the revolution, negotiated the Anglo-Irish Treaty, run the first independent government of Ireland, and led the Irish army to victory as its first Commander-in-Chief. Collins gained international fame as the mystery man who could not be caught, the man who won the war and, paradoxically, the man who made peace with the British Empire and made it stick. That he also paid the ultimate price has ensured that he remains a hero and an icon both in his native country and abroad. Peter Hartís compelling and comprehensive biography draws on many hitherto unseen sources to explore the life of Michael Collins and to ask what made him such an extraordinary and complex man. Set to become the definitive work, Hartís is the first book fully to investigate Collinsís life before becoming a revolutionary and the first to take a critical look at his rise to power and its consequences.

Book Description Penguin Books, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 208 x 140 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Few leaders in history have been as mythologized as Michael Collins. Before his death at 31, he had fought in the Easter Rising, organized the IRA and out-spied British intelligence, negotiated the Anglo-Irish Treaty, and run the first independent government in Ireland. Peter Hart s groundbreaking biography restores humanity to this mythical figure. Drawing on previously unknown sources, delving into Collins s pre-revolutionary past, and assessing the methodsand the costsof his rise to power, Mick reveals a man of often ruthless ambition, more politician than soldier, whose friendships went no farther than his interests. A work as thrilling as it is authoritative. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780143038542
