Inhaltsangabe: Up to half a million Irishmen and women participated in the Great War. Until very recently only the sacrifices made by roughly a third of their number were remembered and commemorated with any pride or regret. This book seeks to redress this neglect. Drawing on their diaries, letters, literary works and oral accounts of soldiers, it tells some of the personal stories of what Irishmen, Unionist and Nationalist, went through during the Great War and how, ironically, many of them drew closer together during that horror, than at any time since.
