About the book:

This is an account of the years immediately preceding World War I. Britain faced its gravest political crisis since the days of Cromwell and Charles I. The Liberal Government was determined to grant Home Rule to Ireland, to prevent it, the Conservative opposition was willing to jeopardize the Constitution. And in the North of Ireland, a citizen army of 100,000 Ulster Protestants, led by Edward Carson and armed with smuggled German rifles, prepared to resist by force any attempt to eject them from the United Kingdom. A.T.Q. Stewart is the author of "The Pagoda War: Lord Dufferin and the Fall of the Kingdom of Ava", "The Narrow Ground: Aspects of Ulster, 1609-1969", "Edward Carson", "A Deeper Silence: The Hidden Origins of the United Irishmen" and "The Summer Soldiers: The 1798 Rebellion in Antrim and Down." In 1977, he was a joint winner of the first Christopher Ewart-Biggs Memorial Prize for "The Narrow Ground".
