Summary On Easter Monday 1916, a small group of Irish rebels took on the might of the British Empire. Although defeated militarily, the men and women of the Easter Rising would soon win a moral victory, with their actions leading to the creation of an independent Irish State and contributing to the eventual disintegration of the British Empire. They have inspired countless freedom struggles throughout the world.
Awakening: An introduction to the main characters and the main players of Easter Week on all sides, the political and cultural currents playing out in Ireland, Europe, and the world, up to the cusp of Easter week itself.
Insurrection: Examines the events of Easter Week 1916 on a day-to-day basis through the use of graphics and contributions from military historians and archival material of the voices of participants: rebels, British soldiers, and civilian witnesses.
When Myth and History Rhyme: Deals with the surrender and subsequent executions of the leaders of the Irish Rebellion and the fundamental changes arising from these events including an analysis of the legacy of the 1916 Irish Rebellion.
