This unique book records the experiences of Irish doctors who joined the British armed forces and describes their journey from the relative calm of a pre-war medical career to the horrors of the First World War.

This lavishly illustrated book records the experiences of Irish doctors who joined the British armed forces and describes their journey from the relative calm of a pre-war medical career to the horrors of the First World War. Over 240 Irish doctors lost their lives in the conflict, many with no known grave. The courageous and selfless actions of these doctors when assisting their comrades under military fire is explored in a comprehensive yet human account of the key battles and the medical care developed to deal with the aftermath of battle.

The indispensable Directory of Irish Doctors included in this volume is compiled from available records and publications. Each profile contains the name, family details and military record including medals and honours awarded where the information was available. This record, by its very nature and extent, is a fitting and lasting tribute to the Irish medical personnel who risked everything and gave their lives.
