Note: This book is only available as an ebook.

With over 3000 entries in seven separate listings, this book is a major source of reference which puts a human face on these two defining conflicts. Drawing on family papers, extensive interviews and official records, Padraic O’Farrell gives detailed accounts of the involvement of soldiers, politicians, policemen and civilians, Irish and British alike – most of whom have never appeared in the pages of history.

Appendices of casualties and executions, as well as a map and a thorough chronology, complete a picture of the tumultous period from Easter Week 1916 to the final spasms of the Civil War in 1923.

O’Farrell’s pioneering research brings an important, underdocumented era into focus for professional historian and general reader alike. It stands as a sober memorial to the men and women – from gun-runners to messengers to peace activists – who witnessed and shaped the birth of a new state.

    “Excellent attempt to categorise the participants of the War of Independence and the Civil War. O’Farrell has a no nonsense approach and his book is invaluable to the Irish Historian. Recommended to those with any interest in the Rising of 1916 or the Civil War.Also usefull as a guide while reading other books from the period.” LORCAN COLLINS
