A SOLDIER POET. TWO BEAUTIFUL WOMEN. AN UGLY BATTLEFIELD.
Alun Lewis was born in South Wales in 1915.
He was brilliant, loving and charismatic: a successful poet and a good soldier.
He died suddenly while serving on the Arakan front in 1944.
Why he died has always been something of a mystery.
The Long Bones imagines Alun Lewis' last hours in the Burma jungle, and tells the powerful story behind the death of this finest of Welsh World War II poets.
