But it was precisely in their differences and contradictions that their fascination lay. De Valera, the political pragmatist, hoped to secure independence through political agitation, whereas the ambitious Collins, with his restless temperament and boundless energy, was an impassioned patriot who believed in terror and assassination. T. Ryle Dwyer examines the years 1917-22 through the twists and turns of their careers. In an epilogue, he considers the legacy of Collins on de Valera's later political life. This book is the first attempt to examine both men in a comparative light

Michael Collins and the Civil War by T. Ryle Dwyer( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the Civil War, Michael Collins was commander-in-chief of the Free State Army. This new book sheds light on previously unknown information about actions taken by Collins and Churchill during the Civil War. On 14 April 1922 a group of 200 anti-Treaty IRA men occupied the Four Courts in Dublin in defiance of the Provisional Government. Michael Collins, who wanted to avoid civil war at all costs, did not attack them until June 1922, when British pressure forced his hand. This led to the Irish Civil War as fighting broke out in Dublin between the anti-Treaty IRA and the Provisional Government's troops. Under Collins' supervision, the Free State rapidly took control of the capital. In 'Michael Collins and the Civil War', Ryle Dwyer sheds new light on Collins' role in the Civil War, showing how in the weeks and months leading to the campaign he secretly persisted with guerrilla tactics in border areas. This involved not only assassination but also kidnapping and hostage taking. In confronting those tactics on behalf of the British, for instance, Winston Churchill engaged in similar behaviour, including killing and hostage-taking. But until now much of this has conveniently been swept under the carpet of history. T. Ryle Dwyer is a historian and journalist with 'The Irish Examiner'. He has written many books, notably on the period of the War of Independence and the Civil War, and on Eamon De Valera and Michael Collins. His most recent titles with Mercier Press are: 'I Signed My Death Warrant: Michael Collins and the Treaty' and 'The Squad'. Michael Collins was an Irish revolutionary leader, Minister for Finance and MP for Cork South in the first Dail of 1919. He was Director of Intelligence for the IRA and a member of the Irish delegation during the Anglo-Irish Treaty negotiations. During the Civil War, Michael Collins was Chairman of the Provisional Government and commander-in-Chief of the Free State Army. He was shot and killed in August 1922 during the Irish Civil War"--Provided by publisher
A U.S. spy in Ireland by Martin Quigley( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1943 Martin Quigley was one of three intelligence agents sent to Ireland to evaluate Ireland's neutrality during World War II, or the Emergency as it was euphamistically termed by the Irish. The only agent to retain his cover (as a representative of the U.S. film industry), his mission was to confirm or deny the widely-held view that Ireland was unhelpful to the Allies and even pro-German, a sentiment that still remains in the former Allied countries today

- Anyone be satisfied at the bargain? Will anyone? I tell you this early this morning I signed my death warrant. I thought at the time how odd, how ridiculous - a bullet may just as well have done the job five years ago.' To Michael Collins the signing of the Treaty between Ireland and Britain in 1921 was a 'stepping stone'. What mattered to Collins was that Ireland be given a chance for independence, a chance for Irish people to govern their own affairs under their own flag. Eamon de Valera called the Treaty 'treason', and subsequently led his followers out of the D! l in protest - an
