I bought this for my grand-daughter for her 13th birthday as she told me she is passionate about the First World War poets and this was my choice as she is showing signs of her own poetic ability

Bought this book for a very good friend and he has loved it. He promises me he has read it three times through already and finds the poems extremely moving.

A beautiful book with emotive WW1 pictures and an insight into the feelings of some of the ordinary people at home and abroad.

World War I, As If It Were Yesterday 27 Oct. 2009
By Charles L. DeFanti Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Illustrated with magnificent crisp, contemporary photographs from the Daily Mail of World War I battlefields, battles, and heartbreaking scenes on the homefront, this book would serve as a fine companion to Paul Fussell's "The Great War and Modern Memory," which also invokes poetry. The text of "A Corner of a Foreign Field," however, is entirely of poems written during the war, many by well known writers like Rupert Brooke, Wilfred Owen, Sigfried Sassoon, etc. Far more, however, are by lesser known or unknown poets, including many women, all of whom I was unaware. These include some of the finest entries, made even more powerful because they came as a surprise.
This book features prominently on my bookshelf.
