by John McCrae and Sir Andrew MacPhail and Michael Gnarowski




Overview -
"In Flanders Fields," the iconic poem which gives its title to this collection of poems and selected prose, is one of Canada's -- and the world's -- best known poems of the Great War. It was written in 1915 by Canadian John McCrae, an artillery man, poet, and medical doctor, upon the death of a friend and fellow soldier during the Second Battle of Ypres in 1915.

This is a faithful reissue of the Canadian first edition of McCrae's writings, originally issued by his friends in 1919 in his honour and memory.
