Finally, in printed form, the poems from Louise’s BBC3 commission ‘Love is a Battlefield’ make a wonderful pamphlet The Uniform Factory is modern war poetry marching to it’s own syncopated rhythm.     Anti-war. Pro-soldier. It documents and dreams the after-affects of economic conscription, war in Afghanistan and PTSD.
