The First World War was the first industrialised war in Europe, and produced horrors undreamt of by the young men who gaily volunteered for service in a war that was supposed to be over by Christmas. From the patriotic enthusiasm of Rupert Brooke through the disillusionment of Charles Hamilton Sorley to the bitter denunciations of Sassoon, Owen and Rosenberg, the war produced an astonishing outpouring of powerful poetry. The major poets are all represented here, as well as many whose voices are less well known. This anthology is illustrated with contemporary motifs.
