War Poems: An Anthology of Unforgettable Verse: An Anthology of Unforgettable Verse by Brian Busby

Since time immemorial war has inspired poets, firing their imaginations to produce some of the world's greatest verse. The poems included in this new compilation cover conflicts from every period of history -- from the wars of the ancients, through the Renaissance and the Middle Ages to the present day. The experiences and emotions they encompass are timeless: heroism, courage, stoicism, comaraderie, despair, understanding, empathy, joy.

Including over 150 poems, this thought-provoking anthology is a fitting tribute to all those affected by war, past and present.
