Synopsis: Following his acclaimed The 1st Royal Irish Rifles in the Great War, James Taylor now completes his study of the regiment's Regular battalions. Having been part of 3rd Division in the original Expeditionary Force, they fought at places such as Mons, Le Cateau, the Aisne, La Bassée, Somme, Messines, and Bellewaarde, ending the war as part of 36th (Ulster) Division. They suffered in excess of 1,400 fatalities, including men from every county in Ireland.

The book gives biographical details on over 320 officers and some other ranks. In addition to the awards and casualty lists, details are given of the 269 men who were court-martialled, including a transcript of the trial of the only member to be executed.

Review: 'A fitting tribute to the men of 1st Royal Irish Rifles.' -- Belfast Telegraph

Praise for the first volume:
'An excellent unit case study, with all the military buff or genealogist could desire.' -- Irish Historical Studies
