Sheds new light on Collins' role in the Irish Civil War, showing how in the weeks and months leading to the campaign he secretly persisted with guerrilla tactics in border areas. This involved not only assassination but also kidnapping and hostage taking. In confronting those tactics on behalf of the British, Winston Churchill engaged in similar behavior, including killing and hostage-taking. But until now much of this has conveniently been swept under the carpet of history.
