A corner of a foreign field : the illustrated poetry of the First World War by Fiona Waters( Book )
8 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 166 libraries worldwide
"Represented here are poems dashed off in the full awfulness of the battlefield, as well as those honed with the terrible benefit of hindsight. And there are poems from an earlier age whose themes and aching beauty exactly matched the mood of a nation as an entire generation was lost to war. Here also are poems inspired by the experience of countless mothers, wives, sweethearts, sisters, and daughters left behind ... The poems are counterpointed by painstakingly restored photographic images-- many seen here for the first time-- which show relentlessly cheerful faces, smiling in the face of darkest adversity. You see comradeship of the most truthful kind. Taken from the unique archives of the Daily Mail, the images capture the small moments of un-named individual people in the cataclysmic catastrophe that was branded 'the war to end all wars'--Dust jacket
