Wonderful little book, an essential buy
on 30 November 2000
This little book has a vast treasury of poems of the first World War. All my favourites could be found, Siegfried Sassoon, Wilfred Owen, Robert Graves, Rupert Brooke and many others, totalling over 80 poems in all.
A very readable book, bringing back memories of poems read long ago. The scenes described are evocative, harrowing, heart-warming. Be prepared to be brought to tears.
I would highly recommend this book for any bookshelf and it is particularly appropriate as an introduction to war poetry.
