Caroll Carstairs was an American art dealer who served in the Grenadier Guards of the British Army during World War I, having represented himself as a Canadian. He saw a great deal of action, won a Military Cross and was severely wounded at the end of the war. He wrote one of the key WWI memoirs, A Generation Missing, which was published the same year as this book of mainly war poems, 1930.
