The anthology also includes prose extracts from, among others:

Featherstone's seven introductory chapters are invaluable for students and lovers of the genre, challenging the dominance of the English officer poets in the canon and providing exciting new ways of reading the poems.
War Poetry is the first collection to provide such a wide range of material and such a clear and thorough guidance to the poems. It offers a new perspective on both poetry as a genre and the place of war poetry in contemporary culture.
