shed light on ww1, 25 Nov 2012
I loved this book. I have bought many books from Amazon and never left a review. But this book was so good. I bought it for my son who had an English topic on World War One. This book was really for much older children. But it was easy to read in sections covering different poets but also covering the history of the Great War. It was useful for the history of ww1. I loved the section on how writers were used for propaganda here and in the US. I also felt the journey that many of these poets and writers travelled before, during and after the war. It also covered life back home and the role of women. This would be great if you need a book to help you with A levels or degree level, but it can still be enjoyed at a lower level or like me for general interest. As for a useful book for my 11 year old son, I must confess he didn't really look at it. But he doesn't really look at any books.
