Product description

Loved by his friends. Feared by his foes. Respected by all. Meet the great warrior and leader who changed the face of Ireland. How many great things can a person do in one short lifetime? Michael Collins was the kind of man who did them all. This soldier, politician and all-round hero was right at the frontline of the battle for a free Ireland. He fought in the 1916 Easter Rising, then rose to the top ranks of the Irish Army. He was Minister for Finance, and leader of a key network of Irish spies. He even led the negotiation of the Anglo-Irish treaty that finally declared an Irish Free State. But soon a warrior’s death would end this hero’s life…

  • The inspiring true story of a celebrated Irish leader
  • Explains the many aspects of Michael Collins’s life
  • Part of the popular Poolbeg In a Nutshell series
  • Combines simple text with appealing line artwork
