"For many Irish, World War I represents the last time Ireland was united as a nation. This volume explores the immediate and continuing impact of the war on Ireland and analyses the effects on Irish national identity and political violence in Ireland.
As the twentieth century drew to a close, people in all parts of Ireland began to recover the memory of the First World War as the last great common experience of the island as a whole. Brings together research whilst re-evaluating older assumptions about the immediate and continuing impact of the war on Ireland. Explores some lesser-known aspects of Ireland's war years as well as including studies of more traditional areas: military, social, cultural, political and economic aspects. Analyses how the experience and memory of the War have contributed to identity formation and the legitimisation of political violence." - Copac
