About the Book

In Dublin, the War of Irish Independence (1919–1921) was an intense and dirty battle between military intelligence agents. While IRA flying columns fought the British Army and the Black and Tans in the countryside, the fighting in Ireland’s capitol city pitted the wits of IRA Commander Michael Collins against the cloak-and-dagger innovations of British Intelligence Chief Colonel Ormonde de l’Épée Winter. This history chronicles the covert war of assassinations, arrests, torture and murder that culminated in the November 1920 mass assassination of British intelligence officers by IRA squads.
