IRISHMEN IN THE GREAT WAR Reports from the Front 1914

Reports from the Front 1914  

RRP: £19.99
OUR PRICE: £4.99  

The story of the Irishmen who served on the western front in the Great War is often submerged by what happened in Ireland during and after the 1916 Dublin Easter rising. This book restores balance, containing diaries, letters home and news reports culled from nearly 30 Irish newspapers. As well as accounts of action there are reports of medical breakthroughs, paranormal experiences, war poetry and PoW accounts.
Twenty-seven Irish newspapers for the period covering the Great War have been trawled through to deliver these amazing stories of those years which changed the world for ever. These are the accounts of local Irishmen at the front; of torpedoed ships; drunken wives; final letters and requests from the trenches. Also included are eye-witness accounts of the slaughter as it was happening; battle reports from officers serving in Irish regiments; quirky snippets; chaplains' sympathetic letters; P.o.W reports of conditions and war poetry. Here are the tales of the Leinster's, Munster's, Connaught's and Dublin Fusiliers serving in the Ulster Division, 10th and 16th Irish Divisions. We read of medical breakthroughs, paranormal occurrences and miraculous escapes from death. After the Irish Rebellion of April, 1916, these type of articles and casualty lists dwindled to very few as Irish hearts became divided.
