Irish Battles

While warfare has been a characteristic of much of Irish history, Irish Battles is the first book to have portrayed the major Irish wars in detail. Illustrated in full colour, and with plans of each battlefield, it presents a military history of Ireland in the form of connected accounts of the major Irish battles, from Clontarf in 1014 to Arklow in 1798.
