Nearly a third of a million Irishmen fought in the Great War, 50,000 of these died. All were volunteers, as there was no conscription in Ireland. The Irish were mobilized in three divisions - the 10th, the 16th and the 36th as well as in the traditional Irish regiments. In all, 72 battalions were raised and saw active service. While the achievements of the 36th - especially on the Somme - are well known, this book looks at this regiment as well as other, less well-known regiments active during the 1914-1918 war. This book should be of interest to students of Irish history, military history or to a general readership.
