John McCrae's poem, "In Flanders Fields" is widely appreciated and recognized for its illustrious depiction of the horrors and chaotic nature of war. However, John McCrae was much more than a war poet. He was an incredibly gifted student and respected doctor. Furthermore, he served in the Boer War prior to First World War, where he was a captain, and later major, of an artillery brigade.
