There can be no area of human experience that has generated a wider range of powerful feelings than war. Jon Stallworthy's classic and celebrated anthology spans centuries of human experience of war, from Homer's Iliad, through the First and Second World Wars, the Vietnam War, and the wars fought since. This new edition, published to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, includes a new introduction additonal poems from David Harsent and Peter Wyton amongst others. The new selection provides improved coverage of the two World Wars and the Vietnam War, and new coverage of the wars of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review from previous edition Review from previous edition quite simply the most rewardingly catholic anthology of battle verse I know. Homer, Byron, Macauley, Hardy - and more recently, Keyes, Reed, Lewis, Douglas and Prince - they're all here, plus an excellent brief essay of introduction. * Times Educational Supplement *
a marvellous collection of old favourites and many surprises. * The Star *
This collection is of exceptionally high quality. * Washington Post *
full of good things...many old favourites and quite a few genuine surprises. * Vernon Scannell, The Guardian *
This is an anthology that works in a way that the work of no single poet could. * The Observer *
