This spoken word CD marks the centenary by telling the story of the war in the words of poets young and old. Hear the early patriotic optimism of John Galsworthy and Robert Bridges. Set out to war in the company of Rupert Brooke and Wilfred Owen. Learn of the premonitions at home from W B Yeats and Thomas Hardy. The readings feature many prestigious poets, including Laurence Binyon, G K Chesterton, Ford Madox Ford, A E Housman, Rudyard Kipling, Edith Nesbit and Isaac Rosenberg.
