Generally, the cult of heroes in the war was naive because popular tradition, propaganda and ignorance made it so. Certain individuals achieved hero-worship; some of them, such as Roberts, Kitchener or Rupert Brooke, dying not very noticeably heroic deaths; some of them, such as Edith Cavell and Jack Cornwall, dying through gallantry. Their common link was that their heroism resided in social duty. BARBUSSE: THE NEW HERO Two poets, Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon, stand out as archetypal soldier-writers; both witnessed and suffered horrors; both won the MC; both spoke out with courage against convention; and both finally had to explore their moral relationship, not with militarists - that was clear enough - but with their fellowsoldiers.

Team games are a ubiquitous motif in the visual and verbal propaganda of the war; they were a part of a widely held self-image of England as a fair nation with an amateur's approach to war (amateur not being a pejorative term, except in the case of right-wing critics such as Kipling). Although The Soldier-Writer as Hero 33 this may have been a valid way of comprehending the war - and for many volunteers it was - it left behind a view of war no more accurate of the Western Front than a Morris romance was of a medieval battle.

I mean the truth untold, The pity of war, the pity war distilled. In 'Strange Meeting' Owen not only pursues the poet's own guilt and doubt, he also comprehends the soldier's role as killer: an area of responsibility which poets had been only too willing to skirt around. The sense of moral equality which Owen reaches in this poem is comprehensively established in his final poem, 'Spring Offensive'. Here the soldiers - not even specifically British - are not victims of profiteers, field-marshals, or the ironic horrors of war.
