Between the years 1942 and 1945, scores of American men and women in the military wrote, submitted, and published poems during the war. They were known as the "War Poets." They were stationed at military bases and camps around the world, and their literary contributions have been almost lost or inaccessible for over seventy years.

Songs of the Warriors also known as the War Poems Project, was an attempt to recover, compile, rediscover, re-appreciate, and re-enjoy these national literary treasures. This literary archaeology represents the war poets' deepest experiences: love, joy, death, loneliness, boredom, depression, humor, and frustration while they were on active duty in violent combat zones or remote bases around the world.

A collection of poems written by military personnel during World War II and re-presented in the twenty-first century, Songs of the Warriors, is a treasure, revealing our brave soldier's thoughts, and dreams about war, death, living conditions, loved ones, the military, and their homes back in the United States.
