Wilfred Owen & Edward Thomas: Owens' Dulce et Decorum Est... says it all for me.
In World War One, the most famous patriotic author are Ali G, Jet Li and Abrahma Lincoln.
Poets in WW2.... ? WW1 I can do, but 2 is different.... theres 1 about 'the lower sling swivel...' which is 2nd World War, I forget the authors name, but I once lost a bet as a result by saying it was 1st word war..... Additionally to the above Naming of Parts by Henry Reed written in 1942
there are none
There were many poet-soldiers in World War 1. My personal favourite is Seigfried Sassoon. Others were John McCrae, Laurence Binyon, Rupert Brooke, Wilfred Owen. All of these men served bravely in the trenches. Another famous poet of WW1 was Rudyard Kipling whose son Jack died in the trench warfare.
254 poets died this is an amazing amount of them to die!
bob doleAudie Murphey was the most decorated soldier in the entire war
Unfortunately there is no one called Owen sassoon. There are two different poets called Wilfred OWEN and Siegfried SASSOON. These poets fought in world war 1 and wrote poems about the war.

Desmen Tutii and so much more
There's a misunderstanding here. In World War 1 the soldiers wrote letters to their families and friends. Even poets wrote letters. It is not the case that 'soldiers [wrote] poetry instead of letters. A small number of World War 1 poets became well known.
Bismarck , HMS Hood , Admiral Graf Spee , Yamato , USS Arizona
Thomas Hardy, Robert Bridges, Austin Dobson and David Herbert Lawrence were actively engaged in writing English Poetry during the years 1914-18. A few other famous poets also were there, of whom Rupert Brooke and James Elroy Flecker passed away in 1915 and Edward Thomas in 1917. But if one is looking for war poetry of that period, it is good to read Wilfred Owen who passed away exactly in 1918 while in action.
There were heroes on both sides. The Allies had Alvin York, the men in Vimy Ridge and the Battle of Verdun, Lanoe Hawker; the Germans had the Red Baron. Of course there is the famous Christmas Truce from both sides. No heroes other than anti-heroes: the war poets and the conscientious objectors.
The WW1 poets rejected the glamorisation of heroism and sought by irony to illustrate the wasted sacrifices of their generation of young men.
you can see all the dates and battles during world war 1 if you go to this website: http://www.freepedia.co.uk/FWWBattles.php (you can just copy the website above then paste it into the address bar)

Poets writing at the time of World War 1 showed how soldiers were by what they encountered in battle?
The carnage and butchery of the First World War manifested itself into world literature and poetry. The pains witnessed at Flanders were described by the Canadian poet John McCrae. The terrible loss of young men and the use of chemical weapons was another topic found across many war poets of the time.
