Miichael Flynn recounts a life of struggle and adventure with the Irish Republican Movement during the 20th Century.
He describes how at the age of 14 he returned home from a fishing trip to find that his father had been arrested and hanged and his mother murdered by the British. He vows revenge and joins the Republican Movement.
The story unfolds in 1917 as he begins running guns through France into southern Ireland, all of which were supplied by the Germans, who hoped the Irish would open up another Front against Great Britain. His numerous skirmishes with the British were never easy until they suceeded in stealing the Mooncar from the British Army.
The deadliest and most feared weapon in the British arsenal, the Rolls Royce Armoured Car spread fear into the hearts and minds of the Irish; it was invincible and was now in the hands of the Republicans and was used by Michael Flynn to devastating effect. His daring actions were the stuff of legends.
His love of Ireland was only matched by the love for his wife; they were inseparable and soul mates until she too was hanged for something she hadn’t done.
In seventy years of fighting the British, he was never betrayed and remained on the wanted list.
