    "A good book about Michael Collins and his fight for freedom in Ireland. This focuses a lot on the women in his life, both professional and personal, and how they also contributed to his cause. It was interesting to read this little known part of the Michael Collins story."

    "This is a biography book about Michael Collins obviously, but interestingly, there are a lot of details, exclusive details that seem to be taken and mentioned here on the book based on reviews. I am not really one of those who is near knowledgeable of the public figure, but if I were to happen to get interested, I would pick up one of these."

    "I am assuming that tis would be one of the best books about Michael Collins because it talks about his death in which he was shot. It also goes over theories on what could have possibly happened or what went on to lead to it."

    "The Irish Civil War does a good job illustrating what the civil war was really like and making you feel like you were there. It does discuss Irish heroes Michael Collins and Eamon Devalera a bit but also goes into depth about other subjects as well. "

    "I do not have a great interest in Michael Collins but I was a bit curious to learn more. While this book was useful and information, it was not a fun read. The author writes more like a textbook than a piece of literature. All the info you need though!"
