Wonderful post from Stephen Liddell. Re-blogged by Ekaterina Botziou.

This year marks 100 years since the First World War and commemorative events have been occurring throughout the world to remember all who were involved.

My fellow blogger friend Stephen Liddell has just released his latest book Inthe Footsteps of Heroes: A photographic tour of the Western Front – a collection of photos from Stephen’s personal album which takes the reader on a guided tour of some of the main sights of the WWI Western Front.

Stephen has a wealth of knowledge on the subject of WWI and I have decided to share his brilliant post entitled Poetry from the Trenches which includes some of the most powerful poetry written in the darkest hours of the first world war by the soldiers who fought at the front.
