Clean, tight, unmarked; spine straight and uncreased; absolute minimal wear; When Wilfred Owen wrote about the carnage and waste of World War One he exclaimed that "the poetry was in the pity." As pitiable and devastating as many of the pieces in this collection are, these writings by Canadian who witnessed the horror of war first-hand were ignored by critics and readers of the time. It has taken 83 years for this trench literature to find its rightful place in the nation's writing. In this anthology the forgotten experiences of a decade are remembered.
