John Percival (Author), Ian Gibson (Foreword). One thing that most people don't know about the Irish Potato Famine is just how much the British Government is to blame for all those deaths. Any food that an Irish person had in their possession was seized and then shipped to England and other countries. This is the dirty little secret of the British Government.
The Great Famine book. The author, John Percival, does a nice job discussing the The Great Famine of 1845-1851 resulted in the deaths of at least one million Irish. Ireland was dependent on the potato as the primary staple. The blight affected northern Europe as well but other areas weren't as dependent on the potato as their main source of nutrition. The famine was greatly excerbated but the lack of assistance by Great Britain. Britain provided assistance early in the famine but it was not sustained and never enough.
