Wilfred Owen [electronic resource]: The Pity of War

Format

Summary
Drawn from the poems, diaries, and letters of Wilfred Owen, this portrait is a moving testament to the cruelty, horror, and insanity of war. Owen fought, was wounded, and fought again during the murderous front-line conflicts of the 1916 and 1917 offensives; he was killed a few days before the Armistice was signed in 1918-the news of his death reached his parents just as the church bells began to ring out in celebration of peace. Peter Florence, who edited Owen's works for this program, is also their presenter.
