Before his death at 31, Collins had fought in the Easter Rising, organized the IRA, negotiated the Anglo-Irish Treaty, and run the first independent government in Ireland. Drawing on previously unknown sources and assessing the methods - and the costs - of his rise to power, Hart reveals a man of often ruthless ambition, more politician than soldier, whose friendships went no farther than his interests. Some descriptions of sex and some strong language, descriptions of violence. 2005.
