It s all Zac s fault My neighbor s friend from Ireland started talking about Irish history a few weeks ago so, faced with something I knew little about, I followed the time honored librarian s tradition and found a book about it The book itself reads as fiction rather than non fiction, which makes it much easier to follow I had to keep reminding myself that these were real men, not the product of somebody s imagination A lot of the tactical maneuvers were lost on me, but the humanity of the rebels came through loud and clear. Well documented Irish history of the 1916 Easter Rising The facts come form newspapers and personal letters and some details I had never heard before like the mention of shawlies who tried to storm the Post Office when it was taken over by Irish Rebels, convinced the rebels were trying to keep them from their paychecks owed to them from sons and husbands who were fighting in WWI Well worth the read if you like Irish history This was a great book on the events of the uprising, giving a thorough day by day account of events What little I previously knew about the uprising was from a friend s rendition of The Ballad of James Larkin There s a nice Dubliners version of it on youtube The book also included some good photos However, Agony at Easter was pretty lacking in any analysis of causes or aftermath, so I will have to do a lot reading if I m going to understand this part of Irish history Having the typical American s sympathy for the underdog, of course my natural inclination is to side with the rebels, yet I realize that I simply don t know enough about Irish history to have any judgment It does seem that the leaders of the uprising were not very well prepared and were perhaps interested in grand gestures than in success.
