Content

Though the 1916 Rising was put down within a week, the harshness of the British response greatly increased support for Sinn Fein, the Republican party. 
When Sinn Fein won a majority of seats in the 1918 election, they vowed to set up their own Irish parliament, and the D il, was formed on 21 January 1919.
It reaffirmed the 1916 proclamation with the Declaration of Independence, and issued a `Message to the Free Nations of the World' that stated that there was `an existing state of war between Ireland and England'.
On that same day, the first shots were fired in the Irish War of Independence.
This is the story of that war.
A graphic novel, in full color.
