Product description

In Africa and South America, he exposed the cruel treatment of native people at the hands of greedy rubber companies. For this, Roger was made a Knight of the British Empire. But his dearest wish was to free his own country, Ireland, from British rule. So in April 1916, he made a daring attempt to smuggle arms into Ireland for the Easter Rising…
