A Memoir of War and Love

Fergal Keane

After three decades as the BBC’s war correspondent, Fergal Keane explores in this memoir how his fascination with conflict is rooted in his Irish ancestry. Through the recollections of friends and family he investigates the story of his grandmother, Hannah Purtill, her brother Mick and his friend Con Brosnan, who fought the British during the War of Independence in 1919–21. Opposing them was Tobias O’Sullivan, a policeman who believed it was his duty to uphold the law.
