London: Barker 1932. pp. 236. Modern blue buckram, titled in gilt. Ex lib with label and neat stamps. A very good copy.
Desmond Ryan, a St. Enda’s boy, who served with Pearse in the G.P.O., was on the staff of the ‘Freeman's Journal’. His ‘Invisible Army’ is an historical novel on the life of Michael Collins. The first edition was a best seller and sold out within months of its appearance in 1932. Desmond Ryan was one of the few pupils of Padraig Pearse who “went Free State” after the signing of the Anglo-Irish Treaty.
“Men more intimate than he was with Collins have attempted as much, but in neither the most formal nor the most familiar studies has the real Collins emerged as he indubitably emerges in Desmond Ryan’s pages”. – ‘Irish Times’.
