COLOMBO, John Robert and Michael RICHARDSON (comp.). We Stand on Guard : Poems and Songs of Canadians in Battle. Compiled by John Robert Colombo and Michael Richardson. Foreword by Richard Rohmer. [N.pl.] : (Doubleday, 1985).First Printing. Pp. (2),[iii]-xiii,(1),1-210. 8vo, blue cloth with white l ettering to spine. "We Stand on Guard is the first comprehensive collectionof the songs, poems, and verses of Canadians in battle. It brings together famous poems (like "In Flanders Fields"), well-loved songs (like "Mademois elle from Armentières"), and previously unpublished verses (like "The Fenian Blood-Hounds") to dramatize the history of Canada, conflict by conflict. Over three hundred years of martial experience are covered, from the early Indian battles through rebellions and insurrections to the two World Wars (and even World War III). Many of the contributors are poets as well known as Earle Birney, Robert W. Service, Maor Charles G.D. Roberts, Al Purdy, Alden Nowlan, and Raymond Souster; others are soldier-poets unknown to literary history who put into words the meaning of heroism and human suffering. WeStand on Guard was compiled by John Robert Colombo and Michael Richardson who explain in their Introduction that far from being a glorification of warfare, this anthology is a tribute to the spirit of man and the love of freedom. The same note is sounded in the Foreword, which was contributed by Richard Rohmer." - (from the dj). Very good in dustjacket. 20.00
