This poignant cycle of poems by Jenny Hill, with a Foreword by General the Lord Dannatt GCB CBE MC DL, commemorates those who perished in the Great War, 1914-1918.
It is inspired by a series of podcasts by the Imperial War Museum in connection with the First World War Centenary Partnership, 2014-2018.
There is a poem for each of the podcasts, which totalled 48 at the time of writing, plus a closing poem of grief and reconciliation. The poems are illustrated by a series of sparse, haunting images from the pen of Ian Clark.
