Offers writings – reportage, essays, verse, images – dealing with war and its  onsequences from Afghanistan back to the Somme – from the poppy as a cause of war to the poppy as symbol of remembrance – by 30 contributors

Includes contributions from major journalists (Peter Stothard, former editor of  The Times), war correspondents (Patrick Bishop author of 3 Para; Peter Gill); a      former Foreign Office advisor; famous poets (Douglas Dunn, former poet laureate Andrew Motion, Brian Turner); a major British architect (Ian Ritchie); brilliant critics from Oxford University and elsewhere (Christopher Ricks, Seamus Perry, Fiona Stafford) and some soldier-writers

Written for the general reader –provides coverage of visual representation of  war through images by Don McCullin and Sean Power;  with plate sections of work by Paul Nash in an essay by Alice Spawls of the London Review of Books and of the mural art of the recent troubles in the North of Ireland, by Tony Crowley of Leeds University
