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. Gallows-humour standing shoulder to shoulder with bitter anger.     The collection is punctuated by landays- a Pashtun poetic form, traditionally spread woman to woman, changing, rebelling and re-mixing in the telling. Written from the perspective of the families left behind in Northern England
