This anthology of largely unknown poems from the trenches sets out to illustrate the extraordinary range of emotions generated by the horror of the First World War and the experience of trench warfare. The introductory essay discusses the friendships intensified under fire and the strong homo-erotic element characterising the poetry of Siegried Sassoon, Wilfred Owen and others.
