Wilfred Owen, war poet and total babe.
Siegfried Sassoon (1886-1967) was a decorated soldier and war poet during the Great War. He was friends with Wilfred Owen, another amazing poet and all-around great person. Sassoon wrote and published A Soldier’s Declaration in 1917, which outlined his reasons for refusing to fight anymore; he thought the war was being unnecessarily prolonged, and was not worth the suffering it was causing. You go Sass.
