One of the first anthologies of its kind, Enduring Freedom commemorates ten years of British presence in Afghanistan. Featuring poetic contributions from serving personnel of all ranks, veterans, families, and friends it offers a unique spectrum of experiences and memories. It brings readers a number of fresh voices inspired by events and operations relating to Afghanistan, ranging from unpublished poets—such as the schoolgirl who penned a powerful Wootton Bassett-inspired poem—to established poets who found the book to be a suitable and timely vehicle for their formidable new works.
 
With an introduction by Sir Andrew Motion, former UK Poet Laureate, this anthology is sure to entice poetry enthusiasts and those with an interest in military life and experiences.
