The History Of The Irish Citizen Army(R)
This vital historical account by R.M. Fox brings to life the rise from 1913 of the Irish Citizen Army, a worker’s militia that grew under the leadership of trade union leader Jim Larkin and the revolutionary leader James Connolly, a force that earned it’s place in history in the years before Russia’s October Revolution.
R.M. Fox declares that the Irish Citizen Army was “a pioneer force, an inspiration to workers in every land”.
The Irish Citizen Army-in whose ranks women fought alongside the men as full members-was to the fore in the 1916 Easter Rising and the subsequent war against the might of the British Empire before taking the republican side during the Civil War of 1922-1923
