The 2008 Thomas Davis Lecture Series

This is an illustrated collection of essays by leading historians on how the Great War affected Ireland. It finally provides an Irish perspective on the Great War of 1914-18 which, as has often been forgotten, saw over 200,000 Irish soldiers enlist in the British Army and over 30,000 lose their lives.

It relays the experience of ordinary Irish people during the conflict and chronicles the devastating impact this war had, and still has, on Irish society.

The lives and deaths of soldiers in the trenches, volunteer nurses, women, politicians and the workforce are all carefully considered. Archival letters, diaries, wills and drawings, advertisements and photographs are reproduced in this sparkling colour volume that documents the pride, fear, anxiety and sorrow felt by soldiers, nurses, sweethearts, families and friends.
