Edition 1st Edition. First Published Imprint Routledge.
The gradual softening of attitudes over the last twenty years amid great historic change on the island of Ireland, is due in no small part to the efforts of historians, such as Myles Dungan, to tell thousands of forgotten stories. Drawing on the diaries, letters, literary works and oral accounts of soldiers, Myles Dungan tells some of the personal stories of what Irishmen, unionist and nationalist, went through during the Great War and how many of them drew closer together during that horror than at any time since.

What Dungan has achieved with Irish Voices from The Great War, is more of a monument to those forgotten men who died in a dubious war than any public commemoration. It is the theme of respect that the reader will find permeating through this book.
There are examples of respect shown by soldiers to their fellow countrymen of different ideologies, as well as the respect shown by the author to all of his subjects. Public commemorations of war are fleeting, symbolic, all-encompassing to include those giving the orders and those obeying, and paying with their lives.
