This book, following a weekend on the Somme with Mary Freeman as she visits the old front line and back areas, is about the soldiers who wrote poetry and those with whom they lived, fought and, in many cases died. It takes the reader to to the places where they saw action and to the cemeteries and memorials where those who did not survive, rest or are commemorated. Her uncanny knowledge of the battlefields and her deep understanding of poetry, brings to life the men who shared hardship and horror together, men who experience comradeship forged in conditions that are beyond comprehension today, men with normal desires and aspirations who happened to be wearing uniform and some who chose to express themselves through the medium of poetry.

With photographs, maps and poems, this is definitely a book you will want to take with you if you are planning a visit to the cemeteries of the Western Front. It is beautifully written and easy to read and full of interesting anecdotes, as well as extracts from poems.

Lucy London, War Poets
