First published in 1944, during the darkest days of the war, Lord Wavell's great anthology of English poetry - enhanced by his own introduction and annotations - encouraged and delighted many thousands of readers.

It has remained in print every since, proving beyond doubt that, whatever the fashion of the day, poetry can fulfil its ancient function, finding its way to the hearts of the many, not only to the minds of the few.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The worth of Other Men's Flowers is that it is not a manufactured article, made for the market, but the harvest of a life's devotion - of things long held precious in the memory * Daily Telegraph *
It is a vindication of the role poetry can fulfil as a source of inspiration and encouragement * Glasgow Herald *
Generals tend to win their reputations at the cost of other men's lives. By an anomaly unique in military history Wavell's own reputation has reached its widest range - certainly in the English-speaking world - not because of his prowess as a soldier or a proconsul, but because of his identification with a small miscellany containing a selection of other men's verses * Ronald Lewin *
