This is the first part in a trilogy on the dead of the Irish Civil War and deals with the Free State forces. Part 2 (due in 2020) will deal with Anti-Treaty forces while Part 3 (due in 2021) will cover the non-military deaths.

The book is in hardback, contains 400 pages and page size is 210mm x 210mm. The cover is full colour, and the inner pages are in black and white. The book is copiously illustrated with contemporary photographs and modern photographs of the last resting places of many of the men included.

The heart of the book is the 300 pages of National Army Soldiers killed in the line of duty during the Civil War, but seven appendices add information on soldiers who died in other circumstances. There are plans of the National Army plot in Glasnevin and a listing of men who have died since the end of the Civil War and those who died on UN duty.
