Hi Corby,

From my search in, I found some interesting titles. I have
to admit that I'm not a poetry reader so I can't provide you with a
detailed review on each book. You can, however, find some customer
reviews from the links. What I can do is to filter the results and
present you with titles regarding First World War poetry. You may be
able to identify the title that you are looking and perhaps even find
other titles that might interest you. Simply press the "Shift" key
before clicking on a link so it will open a new window or right-click
