Poems and prose unite in this selection from the front line and the home front. Chrys Salt MBE, mother to a soldier, crafts poems, at first to find understanding, but ultimately to confront the forces of war. Steven H McGregor served with the US army in Iraq; his subtle fiction depicts vulnerability beneath a macho martial façade. N Quentin Woolf take his reader by the hand and onto the battlefield, to a place where understanding cannot penetrate and words are empty shells. Sometimes sinuous and suggestive, at others towering, the soundtrack is by Peter Kunert.
