8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By R. Ruggenberg on 20 Mar 2002
Format: Paperback
This extra-ordinary book gives numerous details of the life, the letters and the poems of 66 soldier-poets that died somewhere on the Western Front. It is well written, has interesting details I never found anywhere else. The formule is excellent. The wellknown poets are here, but also many I have never heard about (and some of them are SO good). The book has 480 pages - it even has maps and tells you where the poets are buried. I only hope Anne Powell (the editor of this anthology) will write a sequel in the same way on the poets that came out alive of this nightmare. Sometimes I search for a poet and when he is not in the book I realise this is because he still lived on 11-11-1918. The only reason I give four stars instead of five is because that sequel is not added here already... Of all the collections of World War One poetry this is one the best. Highly recommended.

An interesting book revealng the many poets who were killed during WW1. The tragedy of that talent left on the battlefield.

Format: Paperback
Really happy with the condition of this book considering the price and that it was second hand. Made a very good stocking filler for someone. I would recommend this book to those that are fanatical about the First World War. It provides an added perspective - personal stories of poets, along with samples of their poetry.

An excellent selection but one wishes some poets who survived had been included. The explanatory material to accompany the verses is very good.
