About this title


As a contribution to the commemorations for the centenary of World War I, this is a limited of edition of just 500 copies of Anne Powell’s unique anthology. Why unique? Firstly, these are not simply the works of well-known names such as Wilfred Owen (though they are represented); these are poems painstakingly collected from a multitude of sources, and the relative obscurity of the some of the voices make the message all the more moving. Secondly, all these soldiers died, and their deaths are described in chronological order, which in itself provides a revealing gradual change in the poetry from early naïve patriotism to despair about the human race and the bitterness of  "Dulce et Decorum Est." Anne Powell also provides extracts from these men’s diaries, enough, again, to inform the WWI historian.

About the Author:

Anne Powell  is the author of The Fierce Light, Shadows of War, and Women in the War Zone.
