Julian Grenfell

Julian Grenfell (1888-1915) was a British poet of World War I. He was the son and heir of Lord Desborough, and was educated at Eton College and Balliol College, Oxford. He joined the army in 1910, well before the outbreak of war, and his most famous poem, Into Battle, was published in The Times in 1915, only a few weeks before he was killed in action.
