The Illustrated Poetry of the First World War


ISBN 978-0-9545267-8-8 / 0-9545267-8-3

Published by Transatlantic Press 2007 £14.99 but available for £9.99


This 180 page book is far more than the title suggests - it a very evocative and varied selection of photographs of WW1, with matching poems. The two media combine well to paint a very graphic and realistic picture of the conditions endured by troops in the Great War, in a way in which stuffy historical analysis simply cannot do.


If detailed written histories are not your cup of tea, this book might be the best way to get an insight into the war. Highly recommended.

I forgot to mention that the photographs in this book are taken from 'the unique archives of the Daily Mail' - I've never seen any of them before, and they are stunning images. I've always felt that illustrations in books of WW1 do not do the subject justice, these certainly do!
