The Great Hunger: Ireland, 1845-1849


The Irish potato famine of the 1840s, perhaps the most appalling event of the Victorian era, killed over a million people and drove as many more to emigrate to America. The impact on Anglo-Irish relations was incalculable, the immediate human cost almost inconceivable. This book provides a definitive account.
