Cork Servicemen who died in the Great war.
The Great War resulted in the deaths of many thousands of Irishmen and left an indelible mark on every town, Village and parish throughout the country. This book provides a record of Cork men and woman who served with the British, Imperial and United States armed forces and who died between 04 August 1914 and 31 August 1921. It includes the names of those born in Cork City or County; those who had been resident in Cork prior to enlistment; and those who have married into Cork families. A number of essays on selected aspects of war and its aftermath are also included in order to provide the context within the servicemen fought and died.
