This is a guide to the battlefields that inspired the young and sensitive poet, whose poems are probably the twentieth century's best-known literary expressions of experience of war. Detailed maps, military diaries, photographs and modern roads guide the visitor through the battlefields. Owen's letters are used extensively, together with his poetry, linking specific places events, vividly describing the suffering of the trench.

A comprehensive guide to Wilfred's service with his battalion, the 2nd Manchesters. A battlefield visitor or armchair traveller will be able to follow Owen's military service and travels in the U.K and through France up to his sad death seven days before the Great War ended.

Amazon Review

Anyone who enjoys the poetry of Wilfred Owen and planning a trip to Northern France to visit his grave will find this book of interest. Well laid out it is made easy for the reader to follow in his footsteps, where it is still possible.

Amazon Review

Very informative and good read.

WWI War Poet Wilfred Owen dies

4th November 1918

Wilfred Owen was a British poet and soldier, one of the leading poets of the First World War. His shocking, realistic war poetry on the horrors of trenches and gas warfare was heavily influenced by his friend Siegfried Sassoon and sat in stark contrast to both the public perception of war at the time, and to the confidently patriotic verse written earlier by war poets such as Rupert Brooke. He was killed in action at the Battle of the Sambre, just a week before the war ended.
