Following his acclaimed The 1st Royal Irish Rifles in the Great War, James Taylor now completes his study of the regiment's Regular battalions. Having been part of 3rd Division in the original Expeditionary Force, they fought at places such as Mons, Le Cateau, the Aisne, La Bassée, Somme, Messines, and Bellewaarde, ending the war as part of 36th (Ulster) Division. They suffered in excess of 1,400 fatalities, including men from every county in Ireland. The book gives biographical details on over 320 officers and some other ranks. In addition to the awards and casualty lists, details are given of the 269 men who were court-martialled, including a transcript of the trial of the only member to be executed.

The war on Western Front from 1914 to 1918 remains one of the notoriously great tragedies of the twentieth century. Most people hold it in their minds as a milestone in modern history, yet many of them know less about this devastating clash of nations than they would like - and they would be interested to discover more. Paddy Griffith's short history of the conflict has been written with them in mind - it provides an accessible primer to an enormous and fascinating subject. His account is aimed at an English-speaking readership, and he concentrates on the part played by British Expeditionary Force and the Americans in the conflict. The French and German perspectives are also explained and the wider political and strategic evolution of the war as a whole is laid out as essential background.
