THE SCYTHE AND THE SUNSET by Dennis Johnston (1958)

"The Pillar café, with its clear view of the GPO, has been taken over by the Red  Cross as a first aid station and is being run by the incompetent Myles. Johnston  uses his two main protagonists - Palliser,the British Army Captain who becomes  Prisoner in the Café and Tetley, the novice revolutionary - to explore the clash  of principles and ideals that lay at the heart of the conflict in 1916."
