The Western Front: The Irishmen Who Fought in World War One


‘One of our fellows, while a German flare lit up his trench as it shot over it, saw half a dozen of our raw Irishmen on their knees, praying to the Virgin as if their last hour had come.’
Captain Gerald Burgoyne, C Company, 4th Battalion, Royal Irish Rifles

The Western Front tells the human story at the heart of a war that cost the lives of 35,000 Irishmen.

Compiled by one of Ireland’s leading military historians, it recounts the experiences of the many ordinary Irishmen from all religions and backgrounds who fought in the Great War. In their own words, these men describe the horror of life in the trenches and their experience of combat during World War One.

The book gives readers a real insight into the hopes, thoughts and fears of the soldiers and officers who served in Irish regiments on the Western Front. Conveying not just the thrill of enlistment and training, but also the harsh reality of life during wartime, The Western Front offers a fascinating portrayal of what it was like to serve in the ‘war to end all wars’.
