My rating: 3 of 5 stars
“Are they the soldiers from the ships?” “Yes,” MacCarthy said. “French soldiers, the French have landed.”
The plot describes the French invasion of Ireland and the rebellion by the native Irish also know as The Races of Castlebar, County Mayo.
The story itself is quite interesting even if an American-born writer wrote it.
However, it’s not an easy book to read since it has 5 different narrators and at least 60 characters.
A TV series The Year of the French (1982) was made based on this book.
