About this eBook

An anthology of Great War poetry sourced from the Renfrewshire Heritage archives 1914-1918, and selected and introduced by Tracy Patrick. This collection represents a variety of poetic voices from the west of Scotland, as well as primary source material from the soldiers, their family and friends, who lived during this terrible conflict.

'The human spirit of strength and bravery and stoicism in the worst of circumstances shines through these poems.' Betty McKellar, poet.

'Having delved deep in the archives, Tracy Patrick presents this evocative collection of First World War poetry with a Renfrewshire connection.' Louise Turner, author.
