Letting the dead speak for themselves: Poems of World War I

A couple of Memorial Days ago, on my previous blog,  I published a series of posts honoring World War I veterans through some of the many poets who emerged from that horror. I am republishing that series here. The first link is just some of my own reflections on World War I and the wars in general. Of more importance are the poems that follow. All are written by men who experienced that war and eventually lost their lives to it.
