The Easter rebellion
First published in 1964, "The Easter Rebellion" quickly established itself as the outstanding narrative history of the 1916 Rising in Ireland. It is a thoroughly researched and well-written account of the events of the fateful week, and provides an objective and exciting appraisal of what was perhaps the most decisive week in the making of modern Ireland. The narrative unfolds as a vivid and explosive drama, building up a picture which, while immensely detailed, is nonetheless presented with the greatest clarity. Historical figures are wonderfully personified, revealing a plotting and fighting mixture of realists and idealists.

This book remains the classic work of its kind on the events of the Easter Rising in Ireland in 1916. Several other authors have written books in this area since Caulfield first published this book in 1963. It is still very readable and interested readers of the Rising should, in my opinion, consult Caulfield first as his work is referenced in all recent publications. As a journalist, the authorís training comes through in his language skills and prose and he widely interview many protagonists on both the Irish and British sides and many civilians also. It has stood the test of time and remains a credit to the author.
