Summary
In this cultural history of the poppy, Nick Saunders shows how a humble flower became a universal symbol of remembrance and redemption. It is a journey through 3000 years, from the Trojan War to the 'War on Terror', from a primordial world of Greek sorcery and myth, to the killing fields of the First World War and beyond
