This collection of poetry, with its companion prose collection, commemorates the outbreak of the First World War on 28th July 1914. Most of the poetry, all chosen by the readers, is in English, but the collection also includes poems in Dutch, French, German, Portuguese and Russian. Please note that some poems are still protected by copyright in countries which observe copyright laws based on the author's date of death. The majority of the poems were written during the war itself, but some poems have been included for their relevance in other ways. For more information about each poem, please see this document (PDF format), which also shows the poets' dates of death.
