`McGarry brings us close to the terrifying and exhilarating experience that was 1916. He seamlessly weaved together evocative witnesses with current historiography and narrative... Excellent.' America Magazine `judicious and compelling' Alvin Jackson, The Journal of Modern History `Beautifully produced.' Mary E. Daly, The Irish Times `The Rising not only provides a lucid explanation of what happened in 1916, it also gives us the best account yet of what it was like to be there: with Pearse and Connolly in the GPO, under de Valera's command defending Mount Street Bridge, or just suffering through it all as a helpless civilian. Fearghal McGarry has a keen biographer's eye for human detail and uses it here to weave together the myriad stories of the Easter rebellion. ' Peter Hart, author of The I.R.A. at War
