This powerful documentary revisits the battlefields where the war poets found their inspiration.

The shattering experience of the Great War in the trenches took its toll on a generation of men who were called up to fight in the nightmare of the trenches. The experience proved so awe inspiring that for many the experience could only be summed up in verse. Today their work has become famous for its poignancy and sense of loss.

Wilfred Owen, John McCrae, and Rupert Brooke were cut down in their prime yet their memory lives on in the brief flowering of immortal verse. Others such as A. E. Houseman and Siegfried Sassoon survived the war and were able to add a more reflective aspect. This powerful documentary revisits the battlefields where the war poets found their inspiration and presents a moving and comprehensive survey of their lives and work.
