The First World War was one of the deadliest conflicts in modern history and produced horrors undreamed of by the young men who cheerfully volunteered for a war that was supposed to be over by Christmas. Whether in the patriotic enthusiasm of Rupert Brooke, the disillusionment of Charles Hamilton Sorley, or the bitter denunciations of Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen, the war produced an astonishing outpouring of powerful poetry.The major poets are all represented in this beautiful Macmillan Collectors Li
ary anthology, alongside many others whose voices are less well known, and their verse is accompanied by contemporary motifs.Edited by Marcus Clapham.
