The Wicklow War Dead, a comprehensive list of those from County Wicklow who died during the two world wars, is the second in this series, following the success of The Tipperary War Dead. After tireless research, Tom and Seamus Burnell put together a record of 840 soldiers, officers, sailors, airmen and nursing sisters, who listed their next of kin as being from Wicklow. The list also incorporates the airmen, soldiers and sailors buried in Wicklow during the two wars.
The men honoured in Wicklow War Dead died during the First World War or following it, while in the service of the British Army, the Australian Army, the New Zealand Army, the American Army, the Indian Army, the Canadian Army, the South African Army, the Royal Navy or the British Mercantile Marine. Such a list, combined with intricate data and never-before-seen correspondence and photographs, is an essential addition to any local historian or military enthusiast's bookshelf.
