Ned becomes deeply involved with the growing revolution . . . and the sacrifices it will demand.Through Ned's eyes, "1916 "examines the Irish fight for freedom--inspired by poets and schoolteachers, fueled by a desperate desire for independence, and played out in the historic streets of Dublin against the background of World War I. It is a story of the brave men and heroic women who, for a few unforgettable days, managed to hold out against the might of the British Empire.
