It is the first self-contained study of the British Army in Ireland during the period when an Irish national consciousness was emerging, and the struggle for independence from Britain was raging. Drawing on original research into hundreds of military officers from Ireland, this book draws new conclusions about civil-military relations in Ireland, the Irish experience of the First World War, its relationship to the British Empire, and the evolving question of Irish national identity. At a time when British-Irish relations are strained anew, and with the approaching centenary of Ireland's independence, it is a timely and incisive intervention into these century-old questions.
