Poets have written about the experience of war since ancient times, but the young soldier poets of the First World War still hold a special place in popular memory and literary history. This book explores the work of some of the most influential poets of the period, including Wilfred Owen and Rupert Brooke, as well as lesser-known poets such as Australian Leon Gellert and Canadian John McCrae. Packed full of intriguing background information, with moving quotes from letters, poems and other sources, this book is a testament to the power of language.
