What Are We Fighting For? : New Poems About War Paperback

Part of the Macmillan Poetry series


What Are We Fighting For? explores the concept of war in a brilliantly accessible way for younger readers.

Fascinating and moving in equal measure, there are poems about incredibly brave dogs, cats and pigeons; the Christmas truce of WWI when soldiers played football in No Man's Land; poems about rationing and what it was like to be an evacuee, poems about modern warfare and the reality of war today; plus lots of amazing true historical facts. This cross-curricular poetry book is a brilliant way to get young readers thinking about both the historical and philosophical aspects of war.
