Executed by a British firing squad on May 12, 1916, for his role in organizing the Easter Rising, James Connolly was one of the most prominent radical organizers and agitators of his day. Connolly became a leading socialist writer and theoretician, founding and editing newspapers. This pamphlet, the first graphic treatment of Connolly's life, is issued on the centenary of the Easter Rising.
