In Flanders Fields by John McCrae is probably one of the most well known war poems in the world. Most ANZAC ceremonies of remembrance, like the dawn service on ANZAC Day, include the reading of a poem to help the listeners understand the wartime experience. One of the most common examples used by the ANZACs is this poem. As a result, although not written by an Australian, it has become an important part of the ANZAC legend.
