    DescriptionFrom the publishers of "Judging Dev" comes "Our War: Ireland and the Great War". This book, written by some of Ireland's leading historians, provides an Irish perspective on the Great War which saw over 200,000 Irish soldiers fighting. It relays the experience of ordinary Irish people during the war and chronicles the effect this war had, and still has, on Irish society. The lives and deaths of soldiers in the trenches, volunteer nurses, women, politicians and the workforce are all examined. Archival letters, diaries, wills and illustrations are reproduced which document the pride, fear, anxiety and sorrow felt by soldiers, nurses, sweethearts, families and friends. The book accompanies the "RTE Radio 1" series "Our War: Ireland and the Great War", which is being broadcast from November 2008 to late December 2008.
