4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By RR Waller TOP 500 REVIEWER on 1 Sept. 2011
Format: Paperback
Although every war is fundamentally the same and fundamentally different from every other war, each war has some basic questions which need to be answered and people asking the questions, some near, some far away from the "Front", that place the young Dylan Thomas puzzled over. Linking it only to the front door, the young Thomas could not understand why so many men went to it and never returned.

This excellent anthology of poetry gathers together a feature of WWI which certainly made it different and may make it unique, i.e. the number of young men and soldiers writing poetry about the war. Many of us know of Owen and Sassoon but West, Nichols, Gibson and Freeman may not be so well-known.

An anthology for everyone about a subject we should all consider in writings which resonate.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This collection of poems by a good number of poets, well known and lesser known, gives one a comprehensive summary of the poetry written as a direct result of the First World War. The book is divided into sections reflecting various attitudes and emotions from jingoism at its commencement to brutal reality of war's dehumanising pointlesness. Some poems which I would have included in such an anthology are absent: Hardy's "The man he killed" and Sasoon's "Everyone Sang". But, even so, the poems included made rewarding reading and I would recommend the book to anyone wishing to chart the changing attitudes to the war as it progressed to its wastful conclusion.
