Synopsis

War and Peace A Collection of Classic Poetry and Prose by Michael, M. B. E. Morpurgo

'My subject is War, and the pity of War', wrote First World War poet Wilfred Owen, yet for Rupert Brooke war was a matter of pride, not pity. Sometimes war might even be a vehicle for humour. Whether it's battle hymn or lament, silent reverie or marching song, all aspects of war and peace are to be found in this anthology of classic poetry and prose.

Reviews

'Substantial... and the choice is rich indeed. Endlessly refreshing and intriguing... there's never a dull moment.'
