Product description

Review

[Love Letters of the Great War] gathers together the most moving, intimate and fascinating correspondence to and from soldiers fighting in the First World War (Telegraph)

heartbreaking letters from the hell of the trenches . . . a moving collection (Daily Mail)

The passions of war are universal: these letters reflect the constancy of gallantry, intimacy and grief. (Iain Finlayson The Times)

touching and fascinating first-hand accounts ... a brilliant collection, and a must-read for both young and old (Press and Journal)

Love Letters of the Great War, sensitively edited by Mandy Kirkby and with an insightful foreword by Helen Dunmore, is more than a touching anthology. It shows that letters gave men the chance to reflect on their transformation into soldiers, allowed absent husbands and fathers to participate in family life, formed a point of physical contact between separated lovers . . . and, in spite of the censors, provided a forum for sexual fantasy. (Kate McLoughlin TLS)

emotive and poignant (Sunday Post)

Book Description

A powerful collection of love letters shared between soldiers and their sweethearts during World War I, edited and introduced by Mandy Kirkby, with a Foreword from Orange Prize-winner Helen Dunmore.
