  • 1. Andrew Burns 1899 – 1980
  • 2. He was shot in the leg in “No Mans Land” The place between the English and German trenches . He lay there for three days because every time he lifted his head up he was fired at by the Germans. His friends dragged him back. He lived. Who was he?
  • 3. He was my Great Grandfather!
  • 4. Wilfred Owen “Dulce et Decorum Est” “Anthem for Doomed Youth”
  • 5. •Owen was appalled by what was going on in the war. •Imagery of Owen’s poems is far more dramatic. For example the soldier drowning in the gas attack •Owen‘s anger at this waste of life is shown in the description of the man‘s suffering, “obscene as cancer”.
  • 6. Seigfried Sasson “Attack”
  • 7. • Sassoon wanted people to know the “real war” • He writes from actual experience. The gunfire is real. • He captures the moment of men floundering in mud and “going over the top”. • He ends with a desperate plea for this kind of slaughter to stop.
  • 8. Rupert Brooke “Peace” Rupert welcomes the chance to go to “War” He believes it will give young people something to do!
  • 9. •Brooke thinks that England had become old and weary. •They were “half men” War would do England Good. •Brooke is enthusiastic in his celebration of war because he wants his readers to volunteer for service. •He thought it would be over in six months and they would be home for Christmas.
