Dennis Silk recalls his thirteen year friendship with the war poet Siegfried Sassoon and shares a precious private recording he made back in the 1960s of the old poet reading his own work. It is a unique chance to hear Sassoon's own reading of The General, Base Details, Died of Wounds and several other famous and often anthologised poems.
