The 1914-18 war began with flag-waving, parades and patriotic poetry. Through the lives and work of 12 soldier poets, including Rupert Brooke, Robert Graves, Wilfred Owen, Edmund Blunden and Isaac Rosenberg, this book explores the growing realization of the full horror of modern mass warfare and the brutal reality of life and death in the trenches. It includes a selection of the poets' finest verses and is illustrated with historic photographs and documents.
