But also underplayed at some points as merely a Potato Famine...but it does give a fairly good overview of the callous and unfeeling nature of the British Government towards Ireland through the poor laws, penal laws and general attitude and commentary by British Officials of the day. It makes no mention of the tons and tons of food being exported daily out of Ireland to England while the Irish starved.
