I've also looked for War Poetry and not found anything particularly good for WW2 - much more for WW1.
Carrie's War is fantastic. We have:
* written diaries after listening to Neville Chamberlain's announcement of war
* written letters home from evacuees
* written a story in 'chapters' - e.g. mini stories of the evacuation (focus on recount), the new location (focus on description), the new family (focus on characterisation), which pretty much follows the plot of the book.
Try looking at 'Read and Respond' Carrie's War for some good ideas.
