Edited by David Krieger.
Summer Grasses is an anthology of war poetry collected over the years by NAPF President David Krieger. The book takes its title from a haiku poem by the great 17th century Japanese haiku poet, Matsuo Basho. In his poem, Basho looks at a field where a battle once took place. “Summer grasses,” he writes, are “all that remains / of great warriors’ dreams.”
This anthology includes poetry related primarily to wars of the 20th century and beginning of the 21st century.
