Product Description

Review

"From a top World War II historian comes a delightful collection of correspondence by British soldiers, sailors, and aviators." - "The Quarterly Journal of Military History" (Winter 2013)"This book presents a moving (and historically valuable) selection of letters home." - "Daily Mail" (UK)."..provides a collection of original writings gathered by the Imperial War Museum from the last hundred years, revealing the daily lives of soldiers and offering comparisons between the experiences of those fighting different wars. From anecdotes and reflections on experiences to discussions of rations and expressions of love and fear, these capture the hopes, fears and struggles of the universal soldier no matter what the war, and are packed with solid reflections."- James A. Cox, "The Midwest Book Review "(January 2013)
