Bloodaxe's "house" anthology was first published to mark the press's tenth anniversary in 1988. This was a 320-page anthology. A revised, second edition appeared in 1993, with the same ISBN, expanded to 384 pages.With its bold, uncompromising "stable" of new and established British, Irish, American and European writers, Bloodaxe has revolutionised poetry publishing in Britain. Bloodaxe poets can't be labelled. They are all different, and they include some of the major writers of our time: Irina Ratushinskaya, Miroslav Holub, Tony Harrison, Denise Levertov, R.S. Thomas, Kamau Brathwaite, Marin Sorescu and Tomas Tranströmer. But if you want a definition of 'poetry with an edge', the poems in this book will supply it. Poetry with an Edge is a startling anthology of vital, vigorous poetry celebrating fifteen years of Bloodaxe Books.Sunday Times: 'Bloodaxe Books has established a ferocious reputation as a publisher of ground-breaking modern poetry.It has cornered a market in the publishing industry with flair, imagination and conspicuous success.'The Listener: 'Bloodaxe has been the liveliest and most innovative poetry house in the last couple of years...The moment a name starts buzzing on the poetry grapevine you can be sure that Bloodaxe will be on the trail.'Ambit: 'They are bold and prepared to take risks and put books on the market simply because they think they should be read.'Tribune: 'The poets are both new and downright expert.''This is a vital and catholic anthology, one of the best, in terms of value for money, since The Rattle Bag.' - David Profumo, Sunday Times'As an introduction to the best contemporary poetry, this anthology is invaluable.' - Peter Sirr, Irish Times

In the 50 years since the end of the Second World War, much has been written about the men at the top, but little attention has been given to what soldiering was like for the 'dog-face' and 'squaddy', the NCO's and junior officers. Redressing the balance, this original and powerful book explores the conditions in which the soldiers of many different countries lived and died, as well as their hopes and fears, and their experience of battle. John Erickson, John Keegan, Theodore Wilson and Omer Bartov are among the distinguished cast of historians whose subjects range from GIs in Europe to Indian troops in North Africa, and from the comic overtones of Dad's Army in Britain to the grim earnest of the war on the eastern front, where Russian woman fought as full combatants.
