Great stocking filler that helps a good cause, 23 Nov 2011
A nice selection of contemporary war poems, covering a spectrum of conflicts and written by a diverse audience, ranging from those serving in Afghanistan to family members and veterans.
Interesting to see the varying styles of poetic expression as well as the raw emotion that comes across in the poems - powerful stuff that makes you simultaneously shocked and upset but also extremely proud at what some give for their country, or their buddies.
Should be included on the school syllabus so that young folk can see, and appreciate what contemporaries from their generation are sacrificing.
