This presentation gives the reader an overview of the military events during the First World War  as well as a more detailed portrayal of the military aspects of the Martin family’s experience during this period.

The service record of Charles Martin is examined closely and explained within the context of the experience of a typical Irish regiment in the British Army like the Royal Dublin Fusiliers in which Charles served and died.
