Reaping the Whirlwind: The Avoidable Tragedy of the Irish Civil War

Michael McDowell critically examines the background and events that led the movement for Irish independence into a catastrophic and entirely avoidable year of fratricidal bloodletting and destruction from May 1922 to May 1923, a year which inflicted fifty years of bitterness and under-achievement on a people who had united in the cause of freedom.
