A collection of American War correspondence. Carroll features over 150 letters, complied from more than 50, 000 letters sent to him as part of his Legacy Project. The letters encompass every major conflict from the Civil War to Desert Storm. The letters tell tales of love; famous battles; reflections on the nature of war; rescues; and expressions of fear, loneliness, humour and pariotism. Letters come from such historical figures as Colin Powell, Theodore Roosevelt, George S. Patton, Helen Keller and John F. Kennedy, as well as common soldiers, sailors, nurses, spies, journalists, POWs and family members left at home.

Stephen E. AmbroseIn the sweep of history, the experience of the lone soldier is often lost, but in this breathtaking collection the individual voices of the men and women who have served this nation come to life with a power and an eloquence that is both gripping and unforgettable. I can think of no better way to understand the horrors of war than to read the words of those who have been caught in its grasp, and these extraordinary letters offer some of the most dramatic eyewitness accounts of war imaginable. Quite simply, this is one of the greatest, most riveting books of war letters I have ever read.About the Author:
