Songs of the Warriors also known as the War Poems Project, was an attempt to recover, compile, rediscover, re-appreciate, and re-enjoy these national literary treasures. This literary archaeology represents the war poets’ deepest experiences: love, joy, death, loneliness, boredom, depression, humor, and frustration while they were on active duty in violent combat zones or remote bases around the world.
A collection of poems written by military personnel during World War II and re-presented in the twenty-first century, Songs of the Warriors, is a treasure, revealing our brave soldier’s thoughts, and dreams about war, death, living conditions, loved ones, the military, and their homes back in the United States.
