    The poetry that emerged from the trenches of the First World War is a remarkable body of work, at once political manifesto and literary beacon for the 20th century. In this passionate recreation of the lives of poets such as Rupert Brooke, Isaac Rosenberg, Robert Graves, Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen, Nicholas Murray reveals the men themselves as well as the struggle of the artist to live fully and bear witness in the annihilating squalor of battle.
