The title is taken from the Gaelic proverb “It is easy to sleep on another man’s wound”. Written in autobiographical form it provides an insight of life in Ireland from 1916 to 1920. It is stark, truthful and dispassionate in its statement of facts. It tells of shootings and reprisals, jailings and escapes; and introduces well-known figures of the day including De Valera, Michael Collins, Count Plunkett and Countess Markievicz. “Many things have been written round the war between the English forces and the Irish Republican Army, the best of them being, I think, On Another Man’s Wound” - Sean O’Casey.
