Ireland and the Great War

'A war to unite us all'?

Adrian Gregory and Senia Paseta

Published by Manchester University Press

  • As the twentieth century drew to a close, people in all parts of Ireland began to recover the memory of the First World War as the last great common experience of the island as a whole
  • Brings together research whilst re-evaluating older assumptions about the immediate and continuing impact of the war on Ireland
  • Explores some lesser-known aspects of Ireland's war years as well as including studies of more traditional areas: military, social, cultural, political and economic aspects
  • Analyses how the experience and memory of the War have contributed to identity formation and the legitimisation of political violence
