Description: Catholic chaplains in the First World War served alongside the troops at the Front. This is a collection of articles describing the wartime experiences of eleven of these brave men.

Synopsis: - Thirty-two Irish Jesuits served as chaplains in the First World War. - They served on the battlefields of France, Belgium, Egypt and Mesopotamia. - Four were killed and two died from illness. The chaplains served alongside the troops and were exposed to the same dangers and threats. Their presence and proximity earned the respect and admiration of the soldiers. Irish Jesuit Chaplains in the First World War gives an insight into the life and experiences of those who served. The book is illustrated using material from the Irish Jesuit Archives in the form of letters, photographs and telegrams."Life here is very pleasant and interesting, provided one does not mind being killed..." Fr John Gwynn SJ
