A book looking at the war from the French perspective. The main character is James Ryan, an Irish rebel in Napoleon's Irish Legion. From the very start of this book I was unable to put the book down and had to force myself to stop reading. The battles are graphically /5. 4 O 'Callaghan, John Cornelius: History of the Irish Brigades in the service of France. Glasgow, D'Alton, John: Illustrations, Historical and Genealogical, of King James's Irish Army List, 2 vols. Dublin, O'Connell, Mrs. Morgan John: The last Colonel of the Irish Brigade, 2 vols, London,

With the native Irish, they suffered after the 17th century wars and many went into exile, becoming distinguished soldiers in the Irish brigades of the continent (Ulster Surnames: Robert Bell). The most detailed book yet published is John O'Callaghan's 19th century work "History of the Irish Brigades in the Service of France". A (sometimes inaccurate) modern summary is contained in Mark McLaughlin's "The Wild Geese", published by Osprey in as part of their Men at Arms series.

This obsessive interest (sorry as I can't think of any other words to describe it!) led to the publication of the story of the Wild Geese, Irish Brigades Abroad, from the Wild Geese to the Napoleonic Wars (), which took me many years of research and I was delighted when it was so well-received and chosen as one of The Irish Times Best Books of Jewish Volunteers, the International Brigades and the Spanish Civil War discusses the participation of volunteers of Jewish descent in the International Brigades during the Spanish Civil War, focusing particularly on the establishment of the Naftali Botwin Company, a Jewish military unit that was created in the Polish Dombrowski Brigade.
