This unusual and beautiful book collects together twenty five of the often read, well-loved poets. Each poet is illustrated with an original watercolour portrait by the talented young artist, Charlotte Zeepvat, who reproduces in pleasing script one of their works, giving a biographical summary that placed the poet firmly in the battlefield context in which their work was conceived. Sadly, many of these young poets still lie on the poignant battlefields of France and Belgium where they fought.

About Major and Mrs Holt

Major and Mrs Holt founded the first organisation to offer battlefield tours to the general public in the late 1970s. Since the 1990s they have been writing their series of guide books, incorporating all that they have learned from their experiences conducting thousands of people around battlefields. This series, designed to serve as companions for travellers, whether sitting at home or physically visiting the battlefields, includes detailed travel directions, military history, fascinating anecdotes and tourist information. The Holts share the writing of their books equally and conduct all their own research, spending many weeks on the ground as they prepare each new book or update previously published titles.
