This anthology of war poetry combines the words of poets such as Wilfred Owen, Ivor Gurney and Robert Graves with around 200 newly restored photographs of the First World War drawn from the Daily Mail's archive. The poems include both those written by soldiers on the battlefield and those composed later, with the benefit of terrible hindsight; earlier works, such as The Shropshire Lad, which matched the mood of the nation at war; and poems by those left behind, the women.
