Synopsis: Updated and republished due to popular demand, this is a superbly illustrated collective history of all the Irish regiments, past and present, which have served in the British Army with such distinction during war and peace, at home and overseas, for the last 300 years.Covered are: The Early & Disbanded Regiments o The Regular Regiments: Cavalry & Infantry o Yeomanry, Special Reserve and the Territorial Force o Royal Artillery: Militia & Volunteer o The Royal Irish Regiment, the Ulster Defence Regiment & the Royal Irish Rangers. Half a million Irishmen served in the British Army in World War I, one third of Britain's Field Marshals came from Ireland, and of the ten Field Marshals of World War II, one half had Irish origins.The nearly 400 illustrations in this book (48 in color) include action photographs and fine depictions of rarely glimpsed uniforms, as well as masterful paintings depicting actions from previous centuries.Wherever they have gone the Irish have left their mark-as a people, as a culture, almost as a state of mind. This book details in lavish style the exploits of the Irish across three centuries of warfare-through the age of Empire until the present day. R.G. Harris has previously published three books, is a founding member of the Military Historical Society, and a long-standing member of the Society for Army Historical research.
