The Great War (or First World War; World War One in the USA) of 1914-18 - the first major conflict fought by this country with a largely conscripted, rather than enlisted, army - produced an unprecedented outpouring of poetry, much of it of very high standard, and almost all of it extremely striking. The major poets of this era - Siegfried Sassoon, Wilfred Owen, Robert Graves, Isaac Rosenberg, Edward Thomas, Rupert Brooke among them - are still household names; some are set as standard authors at GCSE and A Level. This new anthology includes many of the most famous works by the leading poets, but also lesser-known poems by soldier (and sailor and airman) poets, as well as those by civilians, including women. Ranging from the trenches of the Western Front to the privations of the Gallipoli and Mesopotamian theatres, and from the land war to those at sea and in the air, as well as the Home Front, this wide-ranging collection presents a portrait of a nation and its allies engaged in what came to be called - wrongly, as it turned out - 'the war that will end all wars'.
