This is without doubt one of the best books written on a single battalion that served in the great war, this is a true master piece.

An excellently written book with great detail. Comprehensive history, maps, photographs and human stories.
This book is a must have for anyone with any connection to the Royal Irish Fusillers or any intrest in Military history and WW1.

I bought this book as a source of information about my family regiment, in particular the history of the 9th service Batt in which my grandfather and 2 uncles served in WW1. At 914 pages it includes every conceivable piece of information that I could have wished for. It is well researched and is constructed in a easy to read manner with excellent contemporary photographs, most of which have never before been published. For anyone interested in the untold stories of other ranks this is a book for every military history enthusiast. It is a worthy tribute to the men and 'boys' who answered Kitchener's call and performed heroics in Flanders. Only one regret is that there are none of those men and boys alive to appreciate the esteem they are held in by their families. Particular praise to the author who has provided us with a very valuable resource.

This surely has to be the most comprehensive single Battalion history published thus far, complete as it is with a biography of many of the soldiers who served with the Battalion. Weighty indeed, but what detail. If you want to know about the men behind the actions, then you will not find a better book. Just make sure your bookshelf is able to support the weight !

One has to take one's hat off to the author of this groundbreaking work, 914 A4 pages! Hundereds of soldiers photographed & identified. Biographys of every soldier!, yes every Private that served in the battalion. 20 pages of maps, 270 pages of history & 600+ pages of detailed bio's etc in 9 appendices. As a professional military historian I've never seen it's equal, or anything even come close. Obviously the work of a lifetimes study.

Fantastic but very sad book. Nick Metcalfe has done a great job researching this book. It will remain on my bookshelf for ever.
