The 1916 Rising was an armed insurrection in Ireland during Easter Week, 1916. The Rising was mounted by Irish republicans to end British rule in Ireland, secede from the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and establish an independent Irish Republic while the United Kingdom was engaged in World War I.

This book explains what happened in the years before and after the 1916 Rising, and gives a day-by-day account of the events themselves, with biographies of the leading figures.
