First World War Poems

by Jane McMorland-Hunter

Part of the National Trust History & Heritage Series


First World War Poems Synopsis

There are all the famous frontline poets - including Wilfred Owen, Siegfried Sassoon and Edward Thomas - but also civilians writing from the Home Front, including Rudyard Kipling and Vera Brittain. The poems are organised into themed chapters, ranging from the war in the air to the impact on families and sweethearts and even the contribution of animals. Two of the poems are previously unpublished gems by an airman called Eric Simson.
