Product Description

Review

You cannot fail to be moved by these poems, which come from the heart and enable us to share the feelings of the poets. The importance of this collection is shown by the fact it is published in association with the Imperial War Museum, which was founded to collect and display material relating to the 'Great War'. (Parents in Touch)

A striking and diverse anthology of poems by the likes of Wilfred Owen... Edward Thomas and more. (The Bookseller)

Macmillan teams up with the Imperial War Museum for a new collection to mark the centenary, including poems from the soldiers, nurses, families and friends affected by the conflict. (The Bookseller)

A great variety of poems, nicely arranged and in a very readable format. I loved them all, especially Rudyard Kiping's 'My son Jack'. They all break your heart into a million pieces.

All the poets you would normally expect to see are included in this collection and accordingly it must be considered a poignant and thoughtful collection. If I have one criticism it is that it would have been nice to have seen one or two of the lesser well known, yet equally important, poets, nevertheless, it remains a good read.
