Irish Jesuit Chaplains in the First World War, by Damien Burke
Catholic chaplains in the First World War served alongside the troops at the Front, both in the trenches and on the battlefields, exposed to the same dangers.
Many Jesuit chaplains were highly decorated and recognized for their exceptional bravery by both men and commanding officers.
Irish Jesuit Chaplains in the First World War is a collection of articles describing the wartime experiences of eleven of these brave men. Illustrated with letters, photographs, and telegrams from the Irish Jesuit Archives, this is a fascinating insight into their experiences.
