It does depend on the question given. Having said that, some key points are
- Poppies (alt. viewpoint of the effects of conflict)
- Tissue? Personally I haven’t gone over this but also talk about the fragility of life
- Kamikaze (I don’t know how you would link it but some people in my class did this in the mock we had recently)
- Remains (psychological effect of conflict)
- Exposure (futility of war)
- COLB (uncaring people at home, effects of conflict (notably ‘When can their glory fade?’))


Personally, I would say that Poppies or Remains would be the easiest to compare to (I myself compared Poppies to War Photographer in a recent mock), so if you need any help with Poppies specifically, let me know.

Idk personally I mentioned;
-Helplessness from both perspectives, as both the photographer and the mother have to hear and see good people die daily and are powerless against it

I’m going to be honest, in my essay I made no real attempt to compare the contexts as of course all poems in the anthology have different aspects. However, I linked the actual quotes and such things as ‘religious connotations’ and ‘helplessness’ and ‘psychological effects of conflict’.
