Irish Volunteer Soldier 1913-23, Paperback / softback Book

Irish Volunteer Soldier 1913-23 Paperback / softback

Illustrated by William Younghusband

Part of the Warrior S. series

Description

The political situation in Ireland at the beginning of the 20th century was characterised by crisis and change.

Armed rebellion against the British Crown, the prosecution of the Anglo-Irish War, the emergence of the Irish Free State, and the eruption of the Civil War over the treaty with Great Britain ensured that the birth of the modern Irish nation was bloody and difficult.

This book details the life of an average Volunteer, and includes the experiences of internment, the lack of established medical facilities for wounded, life on the run, discipline, and typical duties.
