Tom Deneire en Bertin Deneire, Nights in Flanders. Joseph Alfred Bradney, Latin Poet of the Great War (s.l.: Lulu Press, 2019).

It is a little-known fact that during the Great War of 1914-1918 a handful of people wrote war poetry in Latin. Not from the safety of their book-laden desks, but very much with their boots in the mud. The most prolific of these Latin war poets was Colonel Sir Joseph Alfred Bradney (1859-1923), who in 1919 even published a booklet Noctes Flandricae or Nights in Flanders with war poetry written in Belgium and France. This book tells the story of both his Latin poetry and his involvement in the Great War.
