To mark the 60th anniversary of the end of WWII in Europe, CSA Word is proud to release a brand new recording of over 100 poems written by the men and women who served during the war. A formidable and unique legacy, this striking collection of poems and voices, framed by helpful narration, evokes the atmosphere and feelings of war in all its aspects: the pain, passion, fear, loneliness, anger, and some unexpected humour too.

Denis Healey aptly describes the compilation as "history with a thousand eyes". Contributions come from all over the world reflecting the vast scale and wide-reaching impact of war. Contributors include Dirk Bogarde; Michael Thwaites from Australia; Uys Krige, the reporter poet from South Africa; Les Cleveland from New Zealand; the Gaelic poet Sorley Maclean; Quintin Hogg; and many more. Sensitively read by a talented cast of actors, comedians, singers, and politicians, The Best of Second World War Poetry is a must for poetry lovers and the understanding of war, to be shared and treasured for many generations to come.
