At War with the Empire: Ireland's Fight for Independence Reviews
At War With The Empire follows on from Gerry Hunt's picture book about the 1916 Rising, Blood Upon The Rose. This time, Hunt summarises the events surrounding Ireland's struggle for independence from Britain in 1919. Yet again, Hunt provides a tidy narrative of an historic period in Irish history as he focuses on the most important events & figures of that year. As before, I was unimpressed by Hunt's artwork. His depiction of the rural & urban landscapes is good, but he's less expert at drawing people & faces. I also felt there was too much text & its position in the layout was often confusing. Nevertheless, At War With The Empire is worth a read for anyone who's curious about the events of 1919 or just wants to jog their memory about Ireland's struggle for independence.
A good primer of how Ireland came to the Easter Uprising and The Civil War. Really enjoyed it.
