Product description

World War II, from the Blitz to Hiroshima. Know the facts? Here are the feelings. The Second World War was the biggest and deadliest war in human history. Death toll: around 60 million. (Mostly civilians.) Get your head around that. It’s hard to imagine. But these moving and powerful poems show you the war’s many sides. Here are the people: soldiers and sailors, children, mothers, refugees, sweethearts. And the places: Polish ghettos, air force bases, London in the Blitz. This is the war as no history book can show it: not just what happened, but what it felt like.

  • Moving and powerful collection of World War Two poetry
  • Depicts both key events and personal moments in verse
  • Published in association with the Imperial War Museums
  • Focuses on poems written by people who really took part

    I really want to read this book because it looks really poetical and very realistic. I also think I should read it because I love poetry.
