Many of the poems have never been seen in print before and are derived almost entirely from archives. Illustrated with drawings and watercolours from unpublished war artists and offers a unique insight and a different approach leading up the 1914 centenary of the First World War. Each poem is accompanied by a brief background on the author and campaign.
