    1. In Flanders Field, by John McCrae, opens with the haunting poem In Flanders Field and is followed up with other poems, mostly of war and with it death McCrae captures the essence of the World War I in his work The second part of the book contains some history of the man and several diary extracts McCrae was schooled as a physician, but served in the Second Boer War as an artillery officer and further served in World War I as an artillery officer before being moved to hospital duty He preferred t [...]


    2. As a disclaimer like a few books I have on my shelves, I have not read this particular edition but it seems the best to use to write the review I wish to.Today is ANZAC Day in Australia This is, for those without any Australian background knowledge, the day when we celebrate our Australian and New Zealand soldiers who fought in the World Wars and in modern wars We celebrate their courage and we celebrate their loss so that we currently possess what we have gained War is not something that has e [...]


    3. I m surprised I didn t read Mccrae in school These poems made me feel many depressing emotions Sadness, empathy, and hatred for war But I love the simplicity and flow of this poetry It is very easy to read and understand.


    4. I remember purchasing this for the branch when it first came out One of my memorable reference questions was an older gentleman who wanted to read a copy of this poem I had to look it up in Grangers before I was able to find a copy in the library for the gentleman who was really happy about it Grangerse internet way of finding poetry I recognized the poem since my mother, born in Canada in 1917, a hundred years ago, had recited the poem on occasion and told me how there was a really large plaqu [...]


    5. This needs to be in the curriculum of every school It s important that everyone that thinks that war is glorious to read this and learn the truth.



    6. I will be reviewing this poem from out of my anthology book One Hundred and One Famous Poems With a Prose Supplement This poem is a brief three stanza poem written during the first world war by Canadian Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae This poem was written as a dedication to a friend of McCrae s that died during the Second Battle of Ypres This poem has become one of the most influential poems of WWI and the British Commonwealth countries The poem had almost been thrown away but after it was publi [...]


    7. Part ode to great literature, part biography of John McCrae, and part World War 1 primer, Linda Granfield s In Flanders Fields sets out to weave together several stories into one Pages full of text are alternated with full page illustrations that feature lines of John McCrae s famous poem at the bottom The book opens with a moving and insightful introduction by Canadian War Museum historian, Tim Cook, followed by a handwritten illustration of In Flander s Fields which is decipherable, but not en [...]


    8. I read this book with my children a while ago, but after reading the other reviews I felt I needed to add my two sense worth Growing up in Ontario The poem In Flanders Fields is taught every Remembrance day My children who are 6, 8 and 10 all have it memorized This book is meant to be read by those who already know the poem It is not a good choice for reading the poem itself It is instead meant to add a historical context to a poem that the author has assumed the reader is already familiar with [...]


    9. Shaking my head at the library s decision to discard again Wow This was so well done I learned the following stuff from this book that I should have learned in either public school or college About the origins of the poem In Flanders Fields to which I hadn t even been exposed can you believe it and its impact About poppies and their connection to WWI NEVER KNEW An important date to rememberwhy don t we remember Everyday issues of a soldier in WWI Warfare stuff I cared little about, but think is [...]


    10. I loved everything about this book except the layout, which was terrible That being said it only went from being a 5 star book to a 4 John McCrae was a field doctor trained in combat, during World War 1 Daily witnessing loss of life moved him to pen a touching poem that personified the respect all should have for the soldiers who gave their lives In Flounders Field, named after McCrae s famous poem, not only did the illustrator do a beautiful job of bringing this poem to life, the author added s [...]


    11. This is a touching book about the poem titled In Flanders Field which is about the soldiers buried in Flanders Field who died in World War I I had not heard of this poem before, but the book includes the poem in the beginning, and then goes through the poem a couple lines at a time with beautiful paintings to go along with the lines After each couple of lines, there is background about what happened in the war, when the U.S entered the war, and other details that help explain what the poem is tr [...]


    12. Like thousands of other readers, I first read this poem in high school More recently, the title and cover of this book caught my eye as I was browsing at my local library It contains interesting background information, particularly about the author, Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, who was a field surgeon on the front lines He wrote this poem shortly after the death of a friend and fellow soldier who died in the horrific Second Battle of Ypres Near the end of the war, McCrae contracted pneumonia [...]


    13. The Great War produced many works describing the great historical, social and psychic break that conflict became I would suggest that In Flanders Fields, although or perhaps because it is cobbled together from disparate bits in different hands, deserves a place in the canon of great works on the Great War.Read my full review here behindthehedge.wordpress 2


    14. I wish the historical data were either at the beginning or end of the poem instead of intermingled But the book still deserves five stars because it is so beautifully done The information is appropriate, the pictures are beautiful and the poem is a classic psst I blogged about it here modernmollymormon


    15. I didn t find this very special really, the book wasn t filled with poetry either, there was a very lengthy essay about each of the poems at the end In Flanders Fields is a fantastic poem, some of the others I really enjoyed too, but I didn t think that many were very memorable at all.



    16. This is a great story to tell, but the format of the book is not very good There are no page numbers, and the line lengths of paragraph text runs 15 20 words Very hard for beginning readers.


    17. beautiful illustrations to the famous poem with a brief history of the war and McCrae woven in I ve read the poem before but new knothing of the poet.


    18. informational very interesting I really enjoyed it I felt that it told a great story, gave information on wwI and presented it in a n enjoyable way.




    19. I m not a fan of poetry but can appreciate the historic significance of these poems The diary entries were interesting to me.
