In A Time of War: Kildare 1914 - 1918
This is the story of one Irish county during that dramatic time.
In this fascinating study based on original research, James Durney reveals the true extent of the military, political, social and economic impact of the Great War on Kildare, the ‘Garrison County’.
He vividly recounts the poignant story of Kildare men leaving their towns and villages, humble cottages and Big Houses for the carnage of the Western Front and Gallipoli. Over 700 never returned.
