The Victory of Sinn Fein, How It Won It, And How it Used It (Hardback, 1924 - 1st Ed.) - O'Hegarty
Used in good condition. Spine, covers and pages in very good condition with foxing. Top front corner of cover has bumping damage.
A valuable first-hand account of the tumultuous events in Ireland from 1916 to 1923, written from a now almost forgotten viewpoint - that of the Irish Republican Brotherhood. O'Hegarty's heroes were Arthur Griffith, the founder of Sinn Fein, and Michael Collins, whom O'Hegarty was especially close to. Besides these key figures, O'Hegarty also provides fascinating portraits of other participants, including Eamon de Valera, who was also an early leader of Sinn Fein. O'Hegarty strongly opposed those who assumed there was a continuing need for force after ratification of the Treaty.
