New book - British Army in Ireland, 1793-1815

I'm very proud to announce that my latest book, 'Rebellion, Invasion and Occupation: The British Army in Ireland, 1793-1815,' (published by Helion and Company in the UK) has finally been released. Covid has certainly played a part in the delay, but hopefully readers will find it interesting and that it fills a gap in the historiography of the period. It's based on my MA thesis, but minus all the academic argument which would have bored the general reader. Helion have done a great job with the maps and Christa Hook has made a superb job of the cover artwork...which I have managed to purchase off her to adorn a wall in my wargaming room, 'The Mess.' In the appendices I've also added orders of battle for the main engagements, along with uniform details for the Irish Militia, yeomanry and fencibles. For those interested, it can be purchased online directly from Helion and Company (https://www.helion.co.uk/military-history-books/rebellion-invasion-and-occupation-the-british-army-in-ireland-1793-1815.php?sid=a817cf0c9182597c57c77ceaee78b0a1), or via the Book Depository or Amazon. It appears that W.H. Smith will also be stocking it for High Street purchasing in the UK.


  1. Publishing a book is a magnificent achievement Wayne and it's a period already established in wargaming circles thanks to the late Duncan McFarlane and his figure range covering most of the troop types required. Helion seem to be a pretty safe pair of hands as a publisher too, so hopefully you should see a decent number of sales! Have a great Christmas and New Year!

  2. Awesome achievement Wayne. Looking forward to reading it.
