This is a major, collaborative study of organised military activity and its broad impact on Ireland over the last thousand years or so, from the middle of the first millennium AD to modern times. It integrates the best recent scholarship in military history into its social and political context to provide a comprehensive treatment of the Irish military experience. The eighteen chronologically-organised chapters are written by leading scholars each of whom is an authority on the period in question. Drawing the whole work together is a wide-ranging introductory essay on the 'Irish military tradition' which explores the relationship of Irish society and politics with militarism and military affairs. The text is illustrated throughout by over 120 pictures and maps.

Review:

'... huge but inviting ... it is difficult, for the general reader at least, to see what might be added to this history to make it more complete.' Books Ireland

'... impressive and timely book ... a resounding triumph.' James Kelly, The Irish Times

'... a quite splendid examination of Irish history through a startling revealing medium.' Kevin Myers, The Irish Times

'In the questions it asks as well as in the story it tells, this book provides a notable and sensitive new marker in the study of Anglo-Irish relations.' Eric Waugh, The Belfast Telegraph

'... with its handsome format, numerous memorable and often unfamiliar illustrations and excellent text, the collection immediately established itself as the essential work for all curious to know of the Irish experience of fighting within and beyond their homeland.' English Historical Review
