Welcome to the worldwarpoetry.com.

This website has been created to combine research on the poetry and poets of  World War II, and also serve as an archive for the now defunct Great War at Sea Poetry Project.

Please note that the links on the older posts-before April 2017- may not still be working.

Eventually it is hoped to launch a literary society devoted to World War 2 poetry.
