Best of Second World War Poetry
Publisher: Canongate Books Ltd.
Date: April 2005
Duration: 3 hours 3 minutes
This striking collection of poems and voices, framed by sensitive and accomplished narration from Cliff Michelmore, truly evokes the atmosphere of being at war and the feelings and aspirations of those embroiled in it. Charting the pain, passion, fear, loneliness and even humour of the men whose lives were irrevocably changed or, tragically, taken by World War Two, this collection is both enjoyable as exquisite poetry and also as an education for current and future generations.
