Michael Collins : a life by James A Mackay ( Book )
6 editions published between 1992 and 2000 in English and held by 986 libraries worldwide
The most charismatic figure to emerge during the struggles for the independence of Ireland was undoubtedly Michael Collins. This remarkable new biography, which draws on much hitherto unpublished material, charts the dramatic rise of the country boy who became head of the Free State and commander-in-chief of the army. Born of peasant stock in the rural south-west of Ireland in 1890, Collins joined the Volunteers in 1916 and fought in the Easter Rising. On his release from detention, he was elected Sinn Fein member for County Cork in the General Election of 1918. The 73 Sinn Fein MPs refused to take their seats at Westminster, instead forming Dail Eireann and declaring for a republic. During the Troubles, when de Valera was in America and other leaders were in prison, Collins, in his dual role of Minister of Finance and Director of Intelligence, effectively ran the Republican government.
