9781901737370: On Another Man's Wound

More than any other book of the period, On Another Man's Wound captures the feel of Ireland―the way people lived, their attitudes and beliefs―and paints brilliant cameo sketches of the great personalities of the Rising and the War. Like many of the Irish, O'Malley was largely indifferent to the attempts to establish an independent Ireland―until the Easter Rising of 1916. As the fight progressed his feelings changed and he joined the Irish Republican Army.

About the Author:

Ernie O'Malley was born in Castlebar, County Mayo, Ireland in 1898. He was a medical student in Dublin when the Easter Rising of 1916 occurred. He then became a member of the Irish Republican Army and organized battalions and companies throughout Ireland, reporting directly to Michael Collins. He died in Dublin in 1957. He is also author of Singing Flame and Raids and Rallies.

Review:

O'Malley [is] a Republican chronicler of great literary skill. (Tim Pat Coogan, Author of The Irish Civil War)

A stirring and beautiful book. (The New York Times)
