Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With 2014 marking the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of World War I, this anthology features poetry from the leading war poets, members of the armed forces involved in both wars, and contributions from civilians

A tribute to the triumph of the human spirit over the desolation and waste of both World Wars, this collection includes many of the famous works by the leading war poets, but also verse by soldier, sailor, and airmen poets, and by civilians. Works included are by Sassoon, Owen, Rosenberg, Edward Thomas, and Sidney Keyes, as well as those lesser known for such verse, among them Hardy, Kipling, Chesterton, D.H. Lawrence, and Ezra Pound. From the hellish visions and overwhelming grief of early writers, to the more private and personal reflections of the poets of World War II, this collection is a eulogy to them all.
