By Peter De Rosa

Rebels tells the dramatic story of the uprising of Easter 1916, a key date for the Irish Republicanism.
With the UK preoccupied with World War I, Irish republicans saw the opportunity they’d been waiting for: the Easter Rising of 1916. Setting up headquarters at the GPO in Dublin, members of the Irish Republican Brotherhood and the Irish Citizens Army planned an uprising to take back their country from the British.

On Easter Monday, they began to seize various locations across Dublin and proclaimed Ireland a republic. The British Army brought in thousands of reinforcements to hold back the Irish, and heavy fighting and gunfire erupted in the streets. The following two weeks would change the course of Irish history and politics forever.
