[Extract] Look inside The Glorious Madness. Tales of the Irish at the Great War by Turtle Bunbury


12-11-2014 11:30

From tragic generals to nuns on the run – the extraordinary stories of the Irish on the frontlines of the First World War that you’ve never heard before. Look inside and read an extract from Turtle Bunbury’s The Glorious Madness!

Based on first-hand accounts of the First World War, The Glorious Madness is a collection of character portraits and stirring anecdotes that brings to life the hopes, fears and ambitions that defined the generation of Irish men and women lost to the catastrophe of the first great modern war.

From the generals and field commanders through to the troopers and nurses on the front lines, from the trenches of the Somme to the beaches of Gallipoli, the Irish served at every turn in the Great War.


Popular historian Turtle Bunbury is renowned for uncovering important forgotten stories from our past. Here he reveals many never-before-heard tales of the Irish heroes and heroines whose lives coincided with one of the most brutal conflicts our world has ever known – including nuns, artists, sportsmen, poets, aristocrats, nationalists, nurses, clergymen and film directors.
