About the Author

David Roberts is a writer, publisher, and the editor of the war poetry website: www.warpoetry.co.uk. He edited two very successful anthologies of poetry of the First World War: Minds at War, The Poetry and Experience of the First World War (1996) and Out in the Dark, Poetry of the First World War, in Context and with Basic Notes (1998). Moved and disturbed by the war in Kosovo and the NATO bombing campaign he wrote a collection of poetry, Kosovo War Poetry, published in 2000. For many years he has been interested in international relations and in particular is concerned with matters of war and peace, and the reform of the United Nations. For two years he was a member of the Executive Committee of Action for UN Renewal. He wrote a pamphlet for them, Lessons from Iraq, the UN must be Reformed (2004). He is working on a book about the United Nations. His book, The European Union and You (2007) is a weighty guide to the European Union, its origins, development, problems and potential. He has edited a volume of poetry by British, Argentine and Falkland Islands writers, Falklands War Poetry (2012). David Roberts was born in Spalding, Lincolnshire, UK, in October 1942 and lives with his wife in Sussex.

Beautifully presented and inevitably a few omissions from my favourite pictures (eg David Shepherd's picture at the chapel in Bordon) but the poems were well chosen with a good pick of Owen's work and interestingly work from other countries though these should have been presented in their original languages as well as translation - why do English writers of today assume we cannot read French, German, Latin or my own language Cymraeg? A message for schools!

I have so many war poetry books, but none containing poems from varied nations, including Germany. Besides some well-known poems, there are also some interesting unfamiliar ones. The art gives the book another dimension, and is suitable for school pupils, students and those interested in military history and literature. With the poetry from other nations, it highlights how death and suffering in war are universal.

Well put together, a reminder of war through poetry, emotional and provocative. Illustrations were a worthy addition and added a certain powerfulness.
