Product Description

Review

We tend to think of War Poets only coming from World War One but every conflict has generated verse both cynical and real. John Jeffcock has brought us today's wars with this powerful book of verse. Read it and reflect. --Major General Sir Evelyn Webb-Carter

These highly personal remniscences evoke powerful images of war and peace. They demonstrate once again that although war is necessarily brutal, soldiers nevertheless are humans who are able to think about moral issues and who can also sympathize with the predicament of their fellow beings. John Jeffcock's collection of poems makes a valuabe addition to the modern literature of war. --General Sir Michael Rose

Having been a soldier who experienced danger and fear, John Jeffcock has been able to produce a remarkable collection of war poems. They express, vividly, the feelings of ordinary officers, soldiers and civilians in both combat and peace, and should be read by those weho seek to understand modern warfare and the profession of the arms. --General the Lord Guthrie of Craigiebank

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By JGS Garfield-Davies on 16 Feb. 2010
Format: Hardcover
A frank, moving and very personal account in candid poetry of real and disperate conflicts experienced personally by the author in Ireland, Bosnia and the Gulf. Talently written by a young retired British army officer and drawn from his own personal experiences of close conflict. Jeffcock's poetry expresses with keen observation, incite and emotional honesty his own tours of duties so evoking the power of the lost generation of poets from the Great War of 1914-1918. A modern Siegfried Sassoon who has survived to tell a real and harrowing human account of current warfare usually concealed from today's reader.

By Pygmy on 18 Oct. 2010
Format: Hardcover
I would have preferred to know that this book was full of poems. I had been led to believe it also contained short, personal stories of life in the war zones. However, that is not to detract from the content which is thought provoking, sad and a real insight into time away from family and friends with your life on the line.
