Published for the first time, this is the account, in his own words, of one of the most active of all the United Irish military leaders. Joseph Holt was about 40 years old at the time of the 1798 rebellion. A comfortably-off tenant farmer, he threw in his lot with the rebels more out of a sense of grievance than for idealistic reasons. He came to the fore after the main Wexford battles, as captain, colonel and general, and successfully operated as a guerrilla leader from the shelter of the Wicklow mountains. He held out long after the main rebellion had ended, before surrendering to the authorities in November 1798. He was deported, but eventually returned to Ireland. A sanitised version of his memoirs was published in 1838. This new edition is the first full and accurate transcript of the Irish part of his memoirs. -- Publisher description
