About this title


Blackpool to the Front! was a rallying cry first heard at treux in August 1914 when the Royal Munster Fusiliers halted an entire German Army Corps. The experience of the hundreds who enlisted from the industrial Cork suburb of Blackpool mirrors the experience of the 200,000 Irishmen who joined up. At least sixty-nine Blackpool men made the ultimate sacrifice: factory workers, sons, husbands, and fathers. Some enlisted to escape poverty, some to defend `the rights of small nations.' They fought in France, Flanders, Gallipoli, Palestine, and on the high seas. This is their story.
