Description
Written from every theater of World War II, by men in every branch and rank of the armed forces, the letters in this collection paint a deeply personal picture of a very special war. Eloquent and unforgettable, they range from a marine's achingly beautiful letter to his infant daughter to a corporal's account of landing with the first wave at Normandy, from the letters of such celebrated figures as William Halsey, George Patton, and John F. Kennedy, to the last message tapped out by a sergeant on Corregidor before the surrender. The grind of military life and the desperation of battle are all here. These letters are as close to the Ôtruth' about war as those who have never been under enemy fire can possible get.
