This review is from: The Penguin Book of First World War Poetry (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
I found this book by George Walter to be funny, sad, enlightening, and above all deeply moving. The collection of poetry had been well researched and laid out in such a way as to make it extremely readable. The detailed notes at the back of the book show that Mr Walter has a deep knowledge of his chosen subject. I would recommend every age group from eight to a hundred and eight to read this book because it will give them a deeper understanding of life in the trenches during the first world war. Having met George Walter, I found him to be a quiet, unassuming man despite his awesomeness.
