‎The Faber Book of War Poetry. (Signed).‎

‎London: Faber and Faber, 1996. 0571174531. "Where previous war anthologies have confined themselves to particular periods or ideological outlooks, Kenneth Baker's takes a catholic view and benefits from a wider exploration of material, classical and modern, English and foreign-language. He has given preference to poems with a strong documentary or psychological realism, and the entire book is divided into sections dealing with such matters as 'The Patriotic Imperative', 'Recruitment', 'Weapons', 'Leadership', 'Civilian Victims', Conscientious Objection', 'Views of Death' and 'Gallantry and Heroism'." Pp.xxvi/598, signed by Kenneth Baker to title page. Navy blue cloth, dustwrapper has minor edge wear but now has a removable clear protective wrap. A heavy volume which may require extra to send overseas. VG/VG.‎
