really liked it
bookshelves: poetry

A moving, human and grounded collection centered on the theme of war. The costs of it, the damage war inflicts not only on the combatants, but those left at home, caught in the crossfire, or run roughshod over. From quiet moments in the foxhole, to Dear John letters, to fear, Gadfly's deft choice of word and mood convey the devastation of warfare, without making a case that war is unnecessary.

Not an easy book, but a solid recommendation.
