Publisher's Description:

'Why?’ confronts the tragedy and sadness of the First World War and humanises the many soldiers who gave their lives for it. Its poignant, powerful and evocative imagery and words brings to life the conditions of the trenches and the situations that these soldiers and their families faced.'

About the author:

Alan F Rees was born and raised in Swansea and served with the British Army's Royal Engineers from 1955-1958, going on to run his own business.  

Alan, now 81, started writing song lyrics in the early 1970s, submitting them to publishers. But it was after his wife Linda started her second degree in English Literature that his poetry journey began through a Swansea poetry collective.

Why? is Alan's debut collection of poetry about the First World War. It was launched at the Wales Air Show on 30 June 2018 as part of the WW1 Centenary, and is released in association with the Royal British Legion. 

Why? is published by Pulpworm.
