Ulster's Stand for Union
Buy and Download >
Ronald McNeill provides a truly fascinating account of the Home Rule Crisis of 1912 from a Unionist perspective. It covers, inter alia, the formation of the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF), the drafting and signing of the Solemn League and Covenant, gun-running to Larne and Donaghadee, Ulster in the Great War, and the establishment of the Ulster Parliament in 1921. The book provides a useful alternative view to that of William O'Brien, Nationalist M.P. for Cork, who wrote of the period in The Irish Revolution and how it came about, published in the following year, 1923.
