This is The Folio Society compendium of over 200 poems, written by those who experienced The Great War, published in 2000. Lyn Macdonald, editor, writes:

"It is more than eighty years since the guns stopped and an uneasy peace fell across the devastated battlefields and the desolate graves of the young men who had fought to defend them. And for what?... It never ceases to amaze me that interest in that momentous conflict, far from diminishing as time goes on, actually appears to increase - and with it the passions it arouses."

This book compiles works by well-known WWI poets such as Owen, Sassoon, Rosenberg, Graves and Brooke, but it also includes poems by dozens of less well-known (or unknown) others as well. The text is illustrated with many photographs of English and German soldiers in different aspects of the conflict.
