A huge thank you to Sally Cronin at the Smorgasbord Blog magazine for reprising her wonderful review of Sheep On The Somme today.
SOmetimes it is difficult to understand the impact of a piece of work – a new poetry collection, in this case – until a reader shares what it means for them. Sally’s review helped me to realise that SHeep On The Somme was perhaps a bigger project, with greater impact, than I had understood until I read her response.
Thank you Sally. Your review has made the work more special to me.
I have read some excellent books during 2021 so far and I am now sharing my reviews for the books from earlier this year…. good books deserve frequent showcases.
I have read and reviewed the poetry collections of Frank Prem and I was honoured to be asked to review his latest release, a profoundly moving photographic and poetic tribute to the Australian soldiers who fought so bravely in World War One.
My own grandfather served in the army for three years and was in the reserves when war broke out. He was called up in 1914 serving in the Royal Engineers. He was killed on November 2nd 1918, after being wounded three times.
Sheep On The Somme: A World War I Picture and Poetry Book – in hardback and paperback this is a memorial to those who endured the horrors of the Battle of the Somme.
