Minds at War: poets O-S

There are 250 poems by 80 poets in Minds at War.

The greatest of all war poets writing in English was Wilfred Owen. 27 of his poems are included in this anthology.

His friend, Siegfried Sassoon, is another major war poet. He recorded, with unflinching honesty and frankness, the range of his attitudes, experiences, and emotions from the start of the First World War till after its end. Minds at War contains 33 of Sassoon's poems.
