Michael Collins was once the most wanted man in the British Empire. Born in west Cork, he was a farmer’s son who changed the course of Irish history. This action-packed biography for young readers follows Michael as he fights in the 1916 Easter Rising, plans the guerrilla war that brought the British government to its knees, and helps to negotiate the treaty that led to the Irish Civil War. In the new Irish state, he became a minister in the first government and Commander-in-Chief of the army. In the end, he was betrayed by his former comrades in a fatal ambush.
