The Irish Rising of 1916 ‘An extremely readable, exciting and well-documented account’ The Irish Times

“British soldiers were bellying along the gutters, then across the bridge, past dead and dying comrades. Some of them, goggle-eyed, spluttering, legs jerking, tongues stiffening, slithered in agony in all directions like hooked fishes on a bank ...”

Rebels tells the exciting story of Easter 1916, a key date in the history of Irish Republicanism. The IRA always claim their authority comes from the martyred heroes of 1916. This book will enable the reader to judge finally whether this claim is true or not.

‘Should be required reading for every member of the British cabinet and every member of parliament.’ J Enoch Powell, MP, The Sunday Telegraph  

‘Rebels is the saddest story I’ve read since A Tale of Two Cities. I’ve wept for Ireland a hundred times since reading it.’ Dr Catherine O’Mahony-O’Shea, grand-niece of Michael Collins

‘De Rosa’s narrative style is terrific!’ Noel Pearson, film producer of My Left Foot

‘Apparently a bestseller, Rebels is in fact a best bestseller.’ Brian Fallon, The Irish Times

‘My God, this is powerful stuff! De Rosa has enshrined Ireland’s heroes for the world to revere. It will bring a tear to the eye of every patriot - of whatever country.’ Stephen Coonts, bestselling US author

‘A stunning, dramatic, lyrical work . . . events encompass enough intrigue, espionage, secret missions, heroism and suspense to fill several international thrillers.’ US Publishers Weekly
