Selected from the work of soldiers who died in action - starting with Rupert Brooke in 1915 and ending with Wilfred Owen, killed just seven days before the Armistice, this 'procession of voices silenced by the war' captures both the realities of life at the front, as in Isaac Rosenberg's Louse Hunting, and thoughts about death such as John McCrae's In Flanders Fields. The anthology is illustrated with contemporary paintings and finely bound in gold-embossed covers. Slip-cased.
