War Booklet

Extracts from this document...


The war booklet write up Lesson 1: Dulce et decorum est What did you learn about the life in the trenches from the poem? How did it make you feel? The poem gave you a detailed description of the life in the trenches. This is not the really the kind of thing people want to read about but it is realistic and shows what really happened. When I heard the poem not only did it make me think about the circumstances but it also made me imagine what life was like for those participating in the war.
