Michael Collins: Himself

Front Cover
Mercier Press Ltd, 2003 - Biography & Autobiography - 136 pages
Michael Collins, Himself focuses on the man behind the mask. Not the soldier, statesman or guerilla but the real, human, Michael Collins.
This new approach offers insights into Collins' personal life and the crucial role women had to play in it; his likes, dislikes, his interests and personality; and includes the memories and anecdotes of members of his family and descendants of those who knew him.
The book is accompanied by photographs illustrating places associated with him as they are today, together with some rare and possibly unseen archive pictures.
