Reviews of : Easter 1916 by Charles Townshend PDF Book
Inside this Book – The approach of the Centenary of 1916 should ensure a fresh batch of writings on the Rising, but I doubt few will come close to being as thoroughly well-researched as Townsend’s account. Townsend’s 1916 is a definitive, well-documented and impartial account of the rising which cuts through the myth to deliver a factual telling of the events of Easter week 1916, while avoiding any temptation towards revisionism.
Inside this book –Easter 1916 PDF Book by Charles Townshend – Few events in modern Irish history are as pivotal as the “Easter Rising”, the dramatic seizure of the General Post Office and other parts of Dublin that marked the declaration of the Irish Republic. Yet for decades the event has never received the thorough examination it deserves, due in part, as Charles Townshend observes in his preface to this fine book, to the long-standing reticence to release the oral histories of the event contained within the archives of the Bureau of Military History. Their release in 2003 provides the best opportunity yet to study the uprising, and Townshend has risen to the challenge by providing a penetrating examination of the origins and the impact of the Rising.
