Unprecedented analysis of the 10th Irish Division’s regimental medal rolls, Commonwealth War Graves Records, census returns, obituaries & newspaper reports.

Vital study of the most neglected, least researched of the three Irish divisions in World War 1 shedding new light on the Gallipoli disaster & the campaign in Palestine. This is the first major history of the 10th (Irish) Division in more than ninety years. Unlike the 36th (Ulster) and the 16th (Irish) Divisions which have been well served by historians in recent years, the history of the 10th has been largely overlooked.

This book emphatically rectifies this long oversight and in so doing brings the complicated story of the Irish divisions in World War 1 to completion. Using newly available sources, regimental medal rolls, newspaper reports, obituaries, census returns and Commonwealth War Graves records, the author subjects the 10th to a ground-breaking analysis, unearthing an unprecedented amount of evidence crucial to understanding its formation, composition and battle-history from Gallipoli to Palestine.

Fascinating and vital details concerning ethnicity, age, religion, employment and social background confound expectations and reveal that the 10th was neither as Irish nor as nationalist as previously believed. The author's research has shed new light on the effects of regimental morale and discipline on combat performance.

All told, this new divisional history- the first in twenty years of any British division in the war- can lay legitimate claim to being the definitive account of the 10th (Irish) Division and will be the benchmark against which future histories of the division are written.
