Yeates really came into his own with this book - tying the themes covered in "Lockout" to the sweep of Irish revolution as it came to its climax. Though a Dubliner, I learned much that I'd never appreciated about my own city - the strongly Unionist politics of many South Dublin and northside neighborhoods, the economic and industrial origins of the poverty of the inner city areas, the latter days of the workhouse system...

"A City in Wartime" should really be seen as the middle book of a trilogy that climaxes with "A City in Turmoil", covering 1919-21. If you're interested in Irish history or just Dublin history, this book is a must.

Yeates 'A City in Wartime' is a brilliant piece of social history that provides an excellent contextualisation of this transformational time in Dublin. One the strengths of this work is the superb job Yeates does in putting the Rising into the context of the times, exploring the impacts on everyday lives, but also avoid over-emphasising specific events.
A City in Wartime is wonderfully engaging narrative, peopled with real characters superbly clothed from documentary evidence. Everyday life and the people of Dublin come alive.
Highly recommended.
