Description:

In contrast to many anthologies, the Oasis series includes only poems by those serving in World War Two and written at the time. This gives the poems their immediacy. Poems, especially from the unknowns, smell of war, an authenticity ensured by the compilers having also been participants in that War, both serving and writing. That is how it was. We were there.
