                                  Misfit - A Revolutionary Life, an autobiography by Captain Jack White

                                  This edition published by Livewire in 2013, 224 pages. Paperback (N4768)

                                  From the rear side cover: Captain Jack White (1879-1946) led a fascinating life, and was co-founder of the Irish Citizen Army during the Irish Transport Workers' Union strike, But, paradoxically, he came from Protestant Ascendancy stock and won distinction in the British Army in the Boer War!

                                  In this autobiography, Jack tells the story of his early years. He arrived in Dublin at a key period in Irish history, the Dublin Lock-Out of 1913 where the Dublin Employer's Federation had locked workers out of their jobs in an attempt by employers to break the power of the Jim Larkin led Trade Unions. There he met James Connolly, became a socialist and used his military skills to set up the Irish Citizen Army. He describes all these events in detail in this book, which he wrote in the late 1920's.

                                  White was imprisoned for sedition after the Easter 1916 Rising, and went off to Spain in 1936 during the Spanish Civil War, where he was active against Franco

                                  The condition of the book is generally excellent. The covers are clean and bright, the spine is tight and intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
