An exciting read providing a glimpse of Irish history intersecting with that of other people and countries. Out of print. Our last copies

Given Ireland's massive volume of emigration over the centuries, it is no surprise that in many wars around the world, Irish soldiers could be found. Being a soldier paid a fair wage and for new emigrants to a new land this was sometimes the only option.

In this book we hear of some foreign war stories involving Irish men. This thrilling book tells the story of John Barry, the 'father of the United States Navy'.

The brutal tale of the San Patricios, deserters from the US Army who fought for Mexico. The forgotten history of the Irish Battalion of the Papal Army in Italy. John Philip Holland and the development of the modern submarine.

The epic history of Irish involvement in the American Civil War for both North and South.
