As a contribution to the commemorations for the centenary of the First World War, this is a limited 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 frm a multitude of sources; and the relative obscurity of 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 WW1 historian.
