it was amazing
bookshelves: memoir
Read from February 01 to May 01, 2001 — I own a copy

War letters includes 200 letters from soldiers from various wars; Vietnam, Persian, WWI, WWII etc. There's nothing more personal than the words put into a letter and Andrew Carroll unexpectedly began another project; The Legacy Project to preserve these priceless testaments to what war is really like. This is a humbling book and one that should be read by all concerned about the effects of war on our soldiers.
While most Americans don't think about our ongoing war efforts on a daily basis we are pulled back into the cruel reality of war when we loose a soldier.
