Product Overview

This anthology presents poems from a hundred years of war by poets writing as combatants on opposite sides, as victims, or anguished witnesses. Editor Neil Astley has created this deeply moving testament to humanity caught up in a hundred years of war. There have been two world wars since 1914, lasting for ten years, but wars have continued for a hundred years since then in many parts of the world: wars between nations, tribes, and factions, wars over religion and beliefs, wars fought for land or oil or history, civil wars, political wars, and the Cold War when the West remained on a war-footing while supposedly at peace.
