One of mankind's greatest tragedies was the First World War. For over four years whole nations unleashed the full might of their newfound destructive powers. Poets played their part in the war as promoters of it, soldiers, victims and onlookers. Their stories, and their responses to their experiences are deeply moving. Their work includes some of the greatest poetry of the 20th Century. Poets in this anthology include Wilfred Owen, Siegfried Sassoon, Edward Thomas, Thomas Hardy, Rupert Brooke, Charles Sorley and Isaac Rosenberg.
