An in-depth study of the death of Michael Collins, a hero of the 1916 Easter Rising, and leader of the Irish War of Independence.
This book offers a startling new perspective on one of history’s most notorious unsolved mysteries: his fatal shooting in 1922, while serving as Commander-in-Chief of newly-independent Ireland. Its controversial new reconstruction of events at Béal na mBláth may be shocking to some: yet demonstrably fits the known facts and eyewitness accounts.
This is the first book on this famous “cold case” to carry on where John Feehan’s landmark study of 1981 left off. It presents the most complete overview of the evidence ever published; as well as an itemized catalogue of the various witnesses’ mutual contradictions and corroborations.Congratulations @BealnamBlath for being @Author of the Week on @AUTHORSWEEK!
