This anthology includes poems of war from the Napoleonic era to our own time in the long shadow of the bomb. The poets evoke images of the glory, and the horror, the exhilaration and the despair, the humanity and the insanity, of war.

Writing poetry has always been a way to express what is going on in the world around us. Unfortunately, sometimes what is around us is war. Acclaimed British actor Paul McGann reads poems that date from the eighteenth century to modern times in this moving audio anthology. McGann is originally from Liverpool, and he still retains a slight Northern accent. Its lilting cadence blends well with the rhythm and worldliness of these powerful poems. Although some of the pieces are well known, others are less so, and this makes the collection even more intriguing for lovers of literature.
