Ireland's Easter Rising of 1916 was almost wholly restricted to Dublin. The insurrectionists numbered around 1500 men and 200 women. Most Dubliners were hostile to them and many encouraged the British. Militarily the insurrectionists never had a hope. Against them the British threw vastly superior numbers and firepower. Their revolution lasted just six days. Its leaders were promptly executed. But the Rising succeeded. How the revolutionaries failed - and yet won - is a conundrum celebrated this centenary year in Ireland and the Irish dystopia internationally. It is a story of one of history's most heroic failures. Paul Taylor's Irish Rising is a story for the ages, detailing the key events and people behind the momentous shift in Irish history.
