This unique and lavishly illustrated book records the experiences of Irish doctors who joined the British armed forces and describes their journey from the relative calm of a pre-war medical career to the horrors of the First World War. Over 240 Irish doctors lost their lives in the conflict, many with no known grave. The courageous and selfless actions of these doctors when assisting their comrades under military fire is explored in a comprehensive yet human account of the key battles and the medical care and expertise developed to deal with the aftermath of battle.
