    A nice collection, though I have preferred other treasuries of World War I poems I've read. I've been leisurely reading through this collection in my spare time. It's divided into twenty sections on different topics: America; England and America; England; France; Belgium; Russia and America; Italy; Australia; Canada; Liege; Verdun; Oxford; Reflections; Incidents and Aspects; Poets Militant; Auxiliaries; Keeping the Seas; The Wounded; The Fallen; and Women and War. My favorites that I marked were A nice collection, though I have preferred other treasuries of World War I poems I've read. I've been leisurely reading through this collection in my spare time.

My favorites that I marked were: In the Trenches by Maurice Hewlett The Guards Came Through by Arthur Conan Doyle The Hell-Gate of Soissons by Herbert Kaufman I Have a Rendezvous With Death by Alan Seeger The Soldier by Rupert Brooke The Volunteer by Herbert Asquith No Man's Land by James H. Knight-Adkin Champagne, 1914-15 by Alan Seeger The Challenge of the Guns by A.N. Field The Red Cross Spirit Speaks by John Finley The Dawn Patrol by Paul Bewsher Destroyers Off Jutland by Reginald McIntosh Cleveland To a Soldier in Hospital by Winifred M. Letts The Fallen Subaltern by Herbert Asquith The Message by Wilfrid Wilson Gibson The Players by Francis Bickley There were many others that I had highlighted passages in, but those were the poems I enjoyed the most, though some of them I had read many times before. I enjoyed the notes at the end about each of the poets, a short biography many times of their military service. That was a nice addition. If you want another good anthology of war poems, read World War One British Poets by Candace Ward. I enjoyed reading that one many years ago.

    I'm not one to generally sit down and read a book of poetry, but that's exactly what I did when I picked up this anthology of poems. This particular book called out to me, perhaps because I enjoy reading things of the WWI time period. The poems collected in this book all reference to World War I, penned during the years of 1914-1917. "Rubadub! Rubadub! Wake and take the road again, Wheedle-deedle-deedle-dee, Come, boys, come! You that mean to fight it out, wake and take your load again, Fall in!

You that mean to fight it out, wake and take your load again, Fall in! Fall in! Follow the fife and drum!" [The Toy Band by Henry Newbolt] I have new favorite poems, whereas I never had any favorite poems before. I've become quite acquainted with writers I had not known before, in addition to seeing familiar names such as Robert Frost, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Rudyard Kipling. "Shadow by shadow, stripped for fight, The lean black cruisers search the sea. Night-long their level shafts of light Revolve, and find no enemy. Only they know each leaping wave May hide the lightning, and their grave." [The Searchlights by Alfred Noyes] I so enjoyed this charming book! I could definitely see myself going through the entire book and reading them all again someday. Also, the poems in this book can be read online on websites such as Bartleby.com if you're interested. "God rest you, happy gentlemen, Who laid your good lives down, Who took the khaki and the gun Instead of cap and gown. God bring you to a fairer place Than even Oxford town." [The Spires of Oxford by Winifred M. Letts]

    This collection appears at first glance like it would have a large number of Trench Poems in it. It does not. More than half the book is nationalistic poems about how great the war is and how bad the Germans are. There isn't a single poems condemning the war, though I've read a number of those, and the Trench Poems they do have are not the best examples, most of them seem to be by people not in the trenches. This collection definitely could have been much better. This collection appears at first glance like it would have a large number of Trench Poems in it. It does not.

    Interesting collection of various country's poetry about WWI. With the poems either siding with patriotism or trauma, the book gives a well-rounded account of the war. It even included poets who fought on the frontlines as well as women who worked as nurses or sent their sons off to fight. There were a few well known poets intermingled with poets who I had never heard of before. Interesting collection of various country's poetry about WWI.
