Little Library: Michael Collins: The People's Peacemaker by John & Fatti Burke


Discover the soldier and peacemaker that was Michael Collins!

Michael Collins was born in County Cork and was the youngest of eight children. He moved to London as a teenager but returned to Ireland to fight in the Easter Rising of 1916. By 1919 he was Minister for Finance in the First Dáil.

After the Irish War of Independence, Michael went back to London to negotiate peace. The resulting Anglo-Irish Treaty established the Irish Free State but depended on an oath of allegiance to the Crown. And so the Irish Civil War began .

Michael Collins is the sixth book in Gill's Little Library series. Other books in the series are Granuaile, Brian Boru, Mary Robinson, Tom Crean and Constance Markievicz. When your collection is complete you'll have a Little Library - and big knowledge!


'Leafing through Michael Collins: The People’s Peacemaker is as fun and thought-provoking for adults as it is for kids, with familiar historical scenes rendered through a new lens.' Irish Examiner

'We think the Little Library collection are a great choice for any parent looking for a good read that’s both educational and fun to read together.' Rollercoaster.ie
