Ireland and the Great War by Keith Jeffery
Book DescriptionThis book explores the impact, both immediate and in its longer historical perspective, of the First World War upon Ireland across the broadest range of experience - nationalist, unionist, Catholic, Protestant - and in civilian social, economic and cultural terms, as well as purely military. Underscoring the work is a belief that the Great War is the single most central experience in twentieth-century Ireland and that the events of the war years, whether at home in Dublin during the Easter Rising or at the European battlefront, constitute a 'seamless robe' of Irish experience. The book also explores cultural responses to the war and its commemoration since 1918, up to the dedication of the Irish 'Peace Tower' in Belgium in November 1998. It argues that identifying and exploring the Irish Great War experience can contribute to the contemporary Irish peace process.

Field Marshal Sir Henry Wilson, Hardback (March 2006)» View all books by Keith Jeffery
Henry Wilson was the only British field marshal ever to die in action, killed on his own doorstep in 1922 by two IRA men. He was a maverick Irishman, at the centre of affairs during the First World War years and after, recording everything in his diary. This is the modern biography of this controversial and misunderstood figure.
