DAN FORD'S BOOKS > MICHAEL'S WAR
When he set out on his road to rebellion, young Michael Ford had no greater ambition than to spoil the sport of the Kerryman Hunt. But before he was done, he found himself exchanging rifle fire with the British army, with an unlikely ally in the form of Annabel Love, the squire's daughter. Michael's War tracks the course of revolution and civil war that rended Ireland from 1916 to 1923. It ends with its hero escaping to America, leaving behind him the "Legion of the Rear Guard"--the Irish Republican Army that has been a burr under the British saddle from Michael's day to ours.
As an e-book with the same content, Michael's War costs $2.99 and is available now from major e-tailers:
As a military historian, he won the 1992 Award of Excellence from the Aviation-Space Writers Association for Flying Tigers: Claire Chennault and the American Volunteer Group, published by Smithsonian Institution Press--and in a revised and updated edition from HarperCollins. "War history as it should be written!" exclaimed the reviewer for the Naval aviation journal The Hook.
