Poetry of War

The "Mother of All 21st Century War Poetry Lists" first appeared in an April 2015 blog post. It is updated and expanded here. In most cases, the list is alphabetized by writer's last name. While "war" is a wider topic, most of these titles relate in some way to conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. If you have suggestions for additions to this list, please comment below, or e-mail: sherpa AT redbullrising.com
