Annette Tapert (ed); David Eisenhower (fr). Written from every theater of World War II, by men in every branch & rank of the armed forces, the letters in this collection paint a deeply personal picture of a very special war. Eloquent & 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, & John F. Kennedy, to the last message tapped out by a sergeant on Corregidor before the surrender. The grind of military life & the desperation of battle are all here. These letters are as close to the ‘truth’ about war as those who have never been under enemy fire can possible get.
