A compilation of letters from officers, soldiers, clergy and others experiencing WWII first hand. They include the highs, lows, and atrocities experienced in both campaigns. A common theme was the terrible food, slowness of the mail service, and how much they missed their loved ones who were waiting at home. There was a brief bio and picture of most of the authors which helped to personalize the letters you were reading.

Hopefully I'll be able to get into it another time.
