Michael Collins - The Lost Leader
Gen Collins at the funeral of Arthur Griffith

At the Treaty negotiations in London, Lord Birkenhead remarked to Michael Collins:

"I may have just signed my political death-warrant", whereupon Collins replied,

"I may have signed my actual death-warrant". Nine months later the 31-year-old Collins was

killed by one of his former comrades and Ireland lost one of the most dedicated

and talented leaders in its history. This is his story.
