A pocket size book which is far better than a tablet. It is well presented and ideal for snap-shot reading. The print is good and easy for those with failing sight.
The selection is wide and helps to try to understand the first world war.
Many pieces are moving especially if read aloud to a group or friends.
Kipling's two liner is most moving and ideal for a debate.
I now look forward to a selection of post-Second World war poems and the conflicts since then.
As I type this I must state I am moved by the selection which in a pocket size book.

Another book I lend to my grandchildren to remind them of the horror of war and the inhumanity of "Top Brass" to consider the poor folk being daily sent for slaughter (on all sides) and the suffering of their families at home in a pre-welfare state society.

The poems do bring a tear to the eye, nothing glorious about that war, what a waste of our youth, you realise how much we owe these brave youngsters, unbelievable what man can do to brother.

Beautiful book. The poetry from greats such as Sassoon and Owen evokes such emotion and really paints a picture of life as a soldier in WWI. Would recommend...
