A short collection of modern war poetry 1995 - 2014
Highly personal, this short anthology draws on the writer's experiences as a soldier and officer of the British Army in conflict zones in Europe, Africa, Iraq and Afghanistan.
Although, the majority of these poems are previously unpublished, a number were published in the 2011 anthology 'Heroes: 100 Poems from the new generation of war poets' published by Ebury press.
The 'Heroes' poems were selected for publication by a panel that included Carol Ann Duffy (the UK Poet Laureate), Simon Rae (Radio 4's 'Poetry Please') and General Lord Dannatt
The poem 'Care Under Fire' was featured on BBC TV's 'The One Show'.
Please be warned: the poem 'Convoy Stop' contains what many regard as the most offensive word in the English language.
