Summary
"This is the story of men from either side of West Belfast's sectarian divide during the Great War. This dramatic book tells the story of the volunteers of the 36th and 16th divisions on the Somme and side-by-side at Messines. Richard S. Grayson also brings in forgotten West Belfast men from throughout the armed forces, from the retreat at Mons to the defeat of Germany and life post-war, including some who became members of the IRA. In so doing, he tells a new story which challenges popular perceptions of the war, and explains why remembrance remains so controversial in Belfast today" -- Book jacket
