About this item

As the centennial of World War I continues, this major new anthology commemorates a less well-known set of figures: poets who served, but without a weapon—those who were there not to take lives, but to save them. Featuring works by writers famous and forgotten, including Vera Brittain, John Masefield, Ernest Hemingway, and Robert Service, the book presents a different face of the war. Like the other war poets, these take us back to the muddy trenches, the danger and terror, and the numbing sense of loss—but they also have a different perspective. If possible, the losses, it seems, strike them harder. An unforgettable anthology honoring an unimaginable experience, Counterwave will be a lasting testament to the men and women of World War I.
