In Action

Half the Irish recruits joined within the first six months of the declaration of war. Many worried that it would be all over before they could get to the front. They need not have concerned themselves.

Boredom, hunger, cold, disease, martinets and rear echelon desk jockeys, punctuated with occasional bouts of sheer terror and undignified death are some the memories recalled here by veterans.
