Poems from the First World War

Poems from the First World War

The war in words. Still full of power a century on, these poems show you the war as no history book can. Drowning in mud. Suffocating in gas. Burying your best friend. Almost a century after the start of the First World War, this stirring collection of poetry shows you a conflict that still defies imagination. There are the soldier poets of the trenches: Wilfred Owen, Rupert Brooke, Siegfried Sassoon. Plus verses written by nurses, mothers, sweethearts, family and friends. So much bravery and loyalty; horror, heartbreak and struggle. Read these poems once. Remember them forever.
