In the middle of tour in Afghanistan something happened... a soldier found his inner muse and started to write poetry about his experiences. Lcpl Alex Roissetter's writing gained momentum and rhythm with each poem, until finally he came home. Eight months later he was back out on tour – except this time it was Iraq.

Still the poems flowed onto the paper.

Read a new war poet's first steps into poetry, as Lcpl Alex Roissetter flourishes into a fully published poet and tries to explain what it's like to be a junior soldier on tour.
