Out of print. Our last copy

From the cities and townlands of Ireland to the killing fields of the Western Front and Gallipoli, Forgotten Soldiers traces the lives of men who enlisted to fight an enemy but ended up being killed by their own side. Stephen Walker explains how, often exhausted by battle, or suffering shellshock, men who refused to fight were branded as cowards, and shot at dawn by a firing squad.

Drawing upon war diaries, court-martial papers and interviews with veterans and family members, the full story of how the Irishmen died which was one of the most controversial chapters in British military history, can at last be told.
