Book Description

31 Oct 2008
Discover poetry from the First World War with an undying power to move and inspire, including the work of Hamish Mann, Leslie Coulson, Rupert Brooke, Wilfred Owen and many others. Selected from the work of soldiers killed in action during the First World War - starting with Rupert Brooke in 1915 and ending with the tragic loss of Wilfed Owen seven days before the Armistice - the poems of In Flanders Fields capture a broad range of emotions and states of mind, ranging from anthems about the brutality of war to wistful evocations of home and loved ones left behind. Including contemporary colour images of paintings and sketches, this collector's slipcase edition showcases some of the best poetry to emerge from the conflict and stands as a worthy memorial to the collective talent and sacrifice of those who gave their lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple Reminder 8 Aug 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is a wonderful addition to anyone's library, especially if you are a historian as I am. A simple collection of World War I poems by some of the greatest poets during that conflict, who portray through words the horror of it all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Moving 8 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
To read poetry written by those in the thick of the war, many of whom would never have claimed to have been poets,is a moving experience.
If you have any interest in poetry, or the First World War, then you will find this book of great interest. It is a tribute to all of those who were there.

Yes, of course we were: they were so blatantly inspired by all the terrible things that happened. And so are all generations after: a tribute (if that is the right word) to all who, so vilely, died in that terrible conflict and a stark reminder to all after. A book that epitomises all that occurred, all those injured and killed - and a book that deserves to be read by all who (or all who should) grieve for the vast loss that first great war incurred. A very good investment for a brilliant but tragic read bringing to life again the nastiness of death that all those who died there deserved (to warrant their gift to us who live after).

5.0 out of 5 stars anthology 23 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An anthology of classicc poems by war poets. Heart rending but appropriate for this 'remembrance' year. All those 'snippets' learned at school in their entirety. A reflective way to honour all war casualties.

The poems in this book were the ones I was taught at school 40 years ago. The sentiments are still relevant today as they were then. Good collection of poetry.
