A excellent insight into war, 15 May 2001
I first got this book because I needed it for an essay, but after reading found it to be a fabulous insight into the brutal nature of war. Owen really tells it like it is and while the rest of the world were, at that time, glorifying the wonders of war Owen was actaully depicting the harsh reality. Clearly shown in poems like Dulce et Decorum est and He Died Smiling. For an excellent insight on the real nature of war it is highly recommendable.
