The Complete War PoemsBook - 2013
This volume publishes all Sassoon's war poems - including those he wrote before seeing action. As a body of work, Sassoon's poetry represents the anger, bitterness and compassion of an intelligent and brave man caught up in the horrific conditions of the trenches of the Western Front, and appalled at the lies and propaganda fed to the British public. This is essential reading for anyone interested in the First World War or, indeed, in any war because Sassoon's poems expose the pain and suffering of the ordinary soldier.
