In Flanders’s Fields

In Flanders Fields is one of the most notable poems written during World War I, created in the form of a French rondeau.

It has been called “the most popular poem” produced during that period. Canadian physician and Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae wrote it on 3 May 1915 after he witnessed the death of his friend, Lieutenant Alexis Helmer, 22 years old, the day before.

The poem was first published on 8 December of that year in the London-based magazine Punch.
