Beautifully presented and inevitably a few omissions from my favourite pictures (eg David Shepherd's picture at the chapel in Bordon) but the poems were well chosen with a good pick of Owen's work and interestingly work from other countries though these should have been presented in their original languages as well as translation - why do English writers of today assume we cannot read French, German, Latin or my own language Cymraeg? A message for schools!

For anyone who loves poetry ,a great selection and with carefully chosen paintings to add to the wonderful ,moving words of men experiencing life in the trenches of WW1 .

Well put together, a reminder of war through poetry, emotional and provocative. Illustrations were a worthy addition and added a certain powerfulness.

I have so many war poetry books, but none containing poems from varied nations, including Germany. Besides some well-known poems, there are also some interesting unfamiliar ones. The art gives the book another dimension, and is suitable for school pupils, students and those interested in military history and literature. With the poetry from other nations, it highlights how death and suffering in war are universal.

The book is everything I hoped for and more. Excellent poems and beautiful graphics. It arrived in the prescribed time as well. Great product!

This is a great book. David Roberts has chosen an excellent selection of poems and paintings from the main participants of the Great War.

A most moving collection of art and poetry proving that great art can sometimes arise from the most terrible of circumstances.

Moving - congratulations to the complier. But don't like the Title so only 4 ++++. 'Leave out 'We are the Dead'
