Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553525794, Audio Cassette)

Throughout the ages, poetry has always been a means of expressing the condition of war.  Dating back to the 16th Century, the poems in this specially compiled anthology tell of many common themes: the heat of battle, the home front, the rigors of training, the loss of a loved one and the impact on the lives of those left behind.

With over eighty poems read by acclaimed British actors Stephen Moore, Tim Pigott-Smith, Juliet Stevenson and Sam West, this collection contains such well-known verse as Wilfred Owen's Anthem for Doomed Youth and Henry Reed's Lessons of the War, as well as lesser-known but equally enthralling poems including the early works of two young servicemen-Spike Milligan and Dirk Bogarde.

From ancient battles, to two World Wars and even to the recent conflict in Bosnia, these poems are sometimes humorous, sometimes moving, and always powerful.  Produced by the world's experts in fine radio entertainment, this magnificent anthology will astound lovers of poetry and introduce a new world of poetry to first-time listeners.
