Wilfred Owen-The Pity of War

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.
