Following the great success of A Story of Dublin and A Story of Ireland this book brings the reader behind the scenes in the heroic defence of Strongholds such as Dunboy, Drogheda, Limerick, Derry and others against the besieging armies.

The battles of Clontarf, Faughert, The Yellow Ford, Benburb and others are brought vividly to life with little-known and fascinating details that are not usually found in history books. How did Cromwell seem to lose his head at the siege of Clonmel?

What order given by Hugh O'Donnell at Kinsale caused all his foot soldiers to flee in panic? In what famous battle did the leader swap clothes with his General so that he would be less conspicuous?

How did William of Orange come close to losing his life before the battle of the Boyne even began?

Read how during the siege of Derry, a certain fat gentleman fancying that several of the garrison were looking at him with hungry eyes hid himself away for two days!
