That illustration on the cover is of Fr. Francis Gleeson (the unit chaplain) administering General Absolution to the 2nd Royal Munster Fusiliers on the 8 May 1915, the eve of the Battle of Aubers Ridge. The battalion was making its way up the Rue du Bois to the front lines to take part in the battle the following morning.

Will look out for the book.
