Ó BROIN, Leon. Revolutionary Underground. The Story of the Irish Republican Brotherhood 1858-1924.
Dublin: Gill, 1976. pp. [viii], 245. Brown papered boards, title in silver on spine. A fine copy in pictorial dust jacket.
This is the full history of the IRB tracing the fortunes of the organisation which had a two-fold objective: to
act as a clandestine gingering element in all Irish nationalist circles, and to preside over the establishment
by force of an independent Irish Republic. With special emphasis on the period 1916-22, chiefly through
the efforts of its greatest leader – Michael Collins.
