Wigs and Guns: Irish Barristers in the Great War
Four Courts Press, 2006 - Broj stranica: 182
The revival of interest in the sacrifices made by so many Irishmen of all backgrounds in the First World War makes the appearance of this volume especially timely. The Irish barristers who died in the conflict on so many different battlefieldsÃ?Â?Ã?Â?here have their backgrounds elucidated. Every effort has been made to track down their last resting-places and also to locate and describe memorials to them where these exist. The names of solicitors and solicitors' apprentices who were also killed are given in an appendix. Another appendix furnishes the text of letters and postcards written from the Front. This commemorative volume is included in the Irish Legal History Society series.
