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

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On 22 August 1922, Michael Collins was shot dead by the anti-Treaty IRA in an ambush at Béalnabláth, in his home county of Cork. His death ended all hope for a quick end to the [civil war] and cut short the life of one of Ireland's most charismatic leaders. [This book] sheds new light on Collins' role in the critical period of the run-up to the [civil war]. While carrying out his ministerial duties and negotiations with the British, he was secretly supporting the IRA's campaign to destabilise Northern Ireland through kidnappings and assassinations, and attempting to reconcile the anti-Treaty IRA with the new Provisional government and the terms of the Treaty. However, this last proved to be too great a challenge, even for a man of Collins' stature, and on 28 June [1922] the first shots in the [civil war] were fired. ..."--Back cover

A U.S. spy in Ireland by Martin Quigley( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 70 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 euphemistically 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. --From publisher's description

The Squad : and the intelligence operations of Michael Collins by T. Ryle Dwyer( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1919, Michael Collins conceived of a scheme to knock out the eyes and ears of the British Administration at Dublin Castle by undermining and terrorising the police so that the British would react blindly and drive the Irish people into the arms of the Irish Republican Army. The Bureau of Military History interviewed those involved in this scheme in the early 1950s with the assurance that the material would not be published in their lifetimes. A few of the contributions were made available by the families of those involved, but the bulk of them have only recently been released. </p
"I signed my death warrant" : Michael Collins & the Treaty by T. Ryle Dwyer( Book )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To Michael Collins the signing of the Treaty between Ireland and Britain in 1921 was a 'stepping stone'. Eamon de Valera called it 'treason'. The controversy surrounding the Treaty and how it led to the Civil War of 1922-1923, is examined here. T. Ryle Dwyer not only takes an in-depth look at the characters and motivations of the two main Irish protaginaists but also gives many insights into the views and ideas of the other people involved on both sides if the Irish sea. Eamon de Valera sent Michael Collins to London in October 1921 to negotiate a treaty with the British Empire. The difficult negotiations took eight weeks before the Treaty was signed by Collins, Arthur Griffith and the other delegates in December 1921. To Collins, the Treaty was simply the start of a process that, in his eyes, would lead to full independence for what was now the Irish Free State, but there were many in the south who believed that Collins had betrayed the republican movement. Just hours after signing the Treaty Collins' wrote 'Will anyone be satisfied at the bargain? Will anyone? I tell you this early morning I signed my death warrant ... ' Eighty-five years on from the historic signing of the Treaty, I Signed My Death Warrant is a compelling study of the controversy surrounding the infamous negotiations and the motivations of the two main Irish protagonists, de Valera and Collins
