As 1998 marks the bicentennial of the first Irish independence movement, Oliver Knox looks at the movement's heroes and villains, and at the similarities and differences between the situations then and now. Drawing on the journals and letters of the four principal rebels, Knox brings these leaders vividly before us as they experience conspiracies, trials, betrayals, wild Atlantic crossings, the ironic perceptions of well-rewarded informers, and terrible, drawn-out deaths.
