An approachable account of the Great War illustrated by the words of our greatest poets The grand narratives of World War I focus on the action and strategy of combat: this masterful work retells the war in an accessible and genuinely moving way. This work tracks the progress of the global war using the words of more than 100 poets and writers. Their words bring the conflict to life in a real, dramatic and sometimes humorous manner. Numerous accounts of the Great War are written from an Anglo-centric viewpoint but 'Ghosts of War' includes global contributions and stresses the Scottish contribution to both the fighting and the poetry. AUTHOR: Andrew Ferguson is a Patron of the Imperial War Museum. His first book, 'Scots who Enlightened the World', received excellent reviews and he regularly speaks at Literary and Arts festivals and to selected audiences. He is a graduate of Cambridge University and, until his retirement, worked as chief executive of a manufacturer of anaesthetic equipment for use in hospitals. SELLING POINTS: ? Published to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the Armistice ? Academically researched but accessible to a general reader ? Includes poems by Italian, German, French, Russian and American poets ? Extracts from Sassoon and Graves and lesser- known writers 15 b/w illustrations
