Excellent short history of the Irish regiments,
This review is from: Irish Regiments in the World Wars (Elite) (Paperback)
It would be impossible to cover the full history of these regiments in just 40+ pages but this Osprey volume provides an excellent introduction. I have made a study of these regiments as I had family members in both world wars serving in Irish regiments. A lot of good detail here and interesting artwork of many now disbanded regiments such as the Innskillings, the Connaught Rangers, the North Irish Horse etc. A good collection of photographs is, many of them previously unpublished. I find the Osprey volumes a bit overpriced but suspect that the artwork and also all of the Imperial War Museum photos do not come cheap. A bibliography provided for anyone who wants to follow up with more reading on the Irish regiments.
