by Meda Ryan.

"They had gone down into the mire to destroy us and our nation, and down after them we had to go."

Tom Barry: IRA leader and fighter chronicles the action-packed life of the commander of the third West Cork flying column including the decisive Kilmichael ambush in the controversy regarding sectarianism during the 1920-22 period.

It details his involvement on the fringes of the treaty negotiations; his Republican activities during the Civil War; his engagement in the cease-fire/dump-arms deal of 1923; his term at the IRAs Chief of Staff and his participation in IRA conflicts in the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s and right up to his death in 1980.

With an extensive body of primary source material including Tom Barry's papers, this biography will appeal equally to both the general reader and to students of history.
