Overview

This is the first book to give a unified picture of Ireland's experience of the First World War. Unlike any previous work it identifies the similarities of experience of constitutional nationalists, separatist republicans and unionists, and deals with civilian, social, economic and cultural aspects, as well as the purely military. The book also relates the experience of the war and its subsequent commemoration to the politics of twentieth-century Ireland, North and South, up to and including the recent peace process.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Keith Jeffery is one of the younger Irish historians, north and south, who have now stimulated a revival of academic interest in the subject...Jeffery has added a very useful bibliographical survey of recent studies, and the book is tellingly illustrated." Journal of Military History

"This book provides an excellent synthesis of social, cultural, and political dimensions of the Irish experience as they relate to the Great War, focusing on the themes of obligation, participation, imagination, and commemoration. It also offers a distinctively valuable perspective that will appeal to specialists and general readers alike." Albion

"Each lecture stands alone, but all are constructed on a foundation of scholarship at once extremely well informed and aggressively focused on this most seminal era in the evolution of modern Ireland." Stand To!

"The book is also well illustrated." The International History Review
