We Go Into Action Today at Noon


by Eamonn Duggan

In the spirit of Antony Beevor and Max Hastings … practically every page of this book contains some fascinating detail … it is a penetrating insight into the human reality of this tumultuous period, and of the bravery of ordinary men and women who fought for the cause of Irish freedom ― Tuam Herald

We Go Into Action Today at Noon … First-hand Accounts from Ireland’s Revolutionary Years, 1913–22

A fascinating view of a vital period in Irish history, from 1913 to Independence, based on statements made by nearly 2,000 people between 1947 and 1957 about their role in Ireland’s fight for freedom. Eamonn Duggan explores the individual contributions of these remarkable people, and what they add to the history we thought we knew.
