During the War of Independence, when Ernie O'Malley lay under sentence of death in Mountjoy prison hospital, some notes of his were smuggled out. 'Most of all,' he wrote, 'I would have liked to talk about the rank and file where I found solace.'

'Entrancing reading, not only for those who lived through those times but for those who seek an insight into the mentality of the men who took on the might of the British Empire.' The Sunday Independent.

'Where O’Malley differs from virtually all others who have published their recollections of those years is that he was a writer and an intellectual who was constantly weighing and analysing all that was happening.’  The Irish Post
