The Final Part of The Soldier's Song

The final part of the acclaimed Soldier’s Song trilogy is now available in all bookshops and online.
The Soldier’s Farewell brings to a close the epic tale that was begun in The Soldier’s Song. This is a story about two brothers, played out against the political and military upheavals that racked Ireland in the 1920s. The Anglo–Irish Treaty brings the war with the British to a close, but a new war is emerging and Stephen finds himself once more called upon as a soldier. Assassinations and guerrilla warfare are the backdrop to the call to arms, as both sides attempt to force a new order.

‘Monaghan is at his best when he veers … into Bernard Cornwell territory. His descriptions of action are lucid and exciting, evoking the tension of the cat-and-mouse manoeuvres of snipers, and simplifying the chaos of small-scale skirmishes … Entertaining’ -- Sunday Times

‘An impressive achievement… a cleanly written, well paced and confident narrative... a skilfully told historical saga’ -- Irish Examiner
