Make Way for Liberty - Various Poets 





Make Way for Liberty 


Four aspects of warfare are explored in this stirring collection of poems written 
by some of the best poets of their era. The horrors of war, the valor of men in 
defending freedom and the remarkable patriotism and discipline evidenced in 
battle are all subjects of this concise collection of classic poetic narratives. 


These four magnificent poems explore the concept of liberty and freedom and 
the individual valor and daring required to achieve a nation's common goals of 
independence and self-determination, despite the often dire consequences of 
which all involved in the struggle are too well aware but are willing and indeed 
eager to face. 


These poems are evidence that tyranny can be conquered by those willing to 
make the essential sacrifice, to take the necessary risks, to stare down the 
specter of death and to replace their own fears with love and devotion to 
country. 


And, yes, death will be a result but a result, despite its loss, pain and tragedy, 
for the common good - or in the words of poet James Montgomery, "Thus 
death made way for Liberty!", echoed by Tennyson's classic assertion, "Theirs 
not to reason why, Theirs but to do and die." - Summary by Bruce Kachuk
