This review is from: The War Poets: A Selection of World War I Poetry (2nd Edition) (Kindle Edition)
There is a good selection of poems including some very famous ones. All of them give a glimpse into a situation that, no matter how well illuminated, is beyond anything we can comprehend. The scenes depicted, the attitudes of the time, the devastation wraught upon every human feeling and emotion are encapsulated here. To a world now obcessed with human rights and health and safety these words attempt to portray why war should be avoided at all costs.
