There he meets shell shocked Lt Wilfred Owen and they begin a friendship that transforms them both and creates some of the twentieth century’s greatest war poetry, including Anthem for Doomed Youth. Both return to the front. Sassoon is shot in the head but survives, Owen is machine gunned to death a week before the Armistice.'
