'Peace after the Final Battle'

The Story of the Irish Revolution 1912-1924

By John Dorney

In this exciting new history book, author John Dorney tells the story of the Irish revolution in an interesting and accessible way, and explains the causes, course, and results of the revolution in an engaging manner. Peace after the Final Battle tells the historical 'big picture' through the eyes of individual participants. Two things make this book different from others on the subject: most popular history books lack a real depth of information and a cogent analysis of the period, especially on the civil war. Peace after the Final Battle provides as much of the full story as possible. The book is both intellectually satisfying and a good read. *** "Exceptionally well written and presented, "'Peace after the Final Battle': The Story of the Irish Revolution 1912-1924" is enhanced with the inclusion of a forty page Bibliography and a comprehensive Index, making it an ideal and highly recommended addition to both community and academic library 20th Century Irish History reference collections, as well as the to the attention of non-specialist general readers with an interest in the Irish Revolution." -- Midwest Book Review, Library Bookwatch, World History Shelf, July 2014 *** "Dorney makes a number of important observations in his account, noting, for example, that the rebellion was opposed by some Catholics and supported by some Protestants, due to complexities of class, ideology, and ethnic identity. A good introduction to the Irish war for inpendence..." --The NYMAS Review, Newsletter, Summer 2015~~
