To me, terror is terror, and I don't care who commits it; the terrorists on both sides were wrong. That renders it almost unreadable to me. ( )

An excellent read which stands the test of time since it was first written. Younger traces how the Civil War came into being and the events that led up to it by giving a brief introduction into the Rising, the War of Independence and the Treaty and the Debates. His analysis is very balanced and well referenced given the access he had to active participants in the Civil War. ( )
