Author(s): Siegfried Sassoon
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.
The War Poems are re-published for the 90th Anniversary of the end of the Great War.
Siegfried Sassoon was born in 1886 and died in 1967. Apart from the War Poems of 1919, he published eight volumes of verse as well as a semi-autobiographical trilogy - Memoirs of a Fox-hunting Man (1928), Memoirs of an Infantry Officer (1930) and Sherston's Progress (1936).
