|Title:||British Military Recruitment in Ireland during the Crimean War, 1854-56||Authors:||Huddie, Paul||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/10209||Date:||Nov-2015||Online since:||2019-04-30T08:43:56Z||Abstract:||Ireland has a diverse military historiography, principally within the confines of the British Army. Much has been written to date in relation to Ireland’s relationship with that service, particularly in recent years and with a focus upon the Great War. Yet significant gaps still remain in relation to the nineteenth century. By analysing the relationship between Irish society and the British Armed Forces, through the lens of recruitment, this article illustrates how and why the Crimean War years represent the positive pinnacle of Ireland’s relationship with the empire and the British Army and Royal Navy.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||British Journal for Military History||Journal:||British Journal for Military History||Volume:||2||Issue:||1||Start page:||34||End page:||55||Copyright (published version):||2015 the Authors||Keywords:||Military history; Ireland; British armed forces; Irish society; Crimean War years; Royal Navy; British empire||Other versions:||https://www.bjmh.org.uk/index.php/bjmh/article/view/69||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
