War Poems

Sassoon, Siegfried

£12.99

This collection of poems emerged from Sassoon’s experiences in the World War I trenches. They demonstrate a bleak realism and contempt for war leaders, which were at first unacceptable to a rather reverential public.

Description

Siegfried Sassoon is one of the First World War poets whose poetry has defined a generation. He published most of his war poetry in The Old Huntsman (1917) and Counter-Attack (1918). Chronologically ordered, the poems in this collection act as a timeline for the war, bringing to life the extraordinary experiences of soldiers in that conflict.
