Random House, Inc.
A touching and inspirational tribute to the human spirit, The 50 Greatest Letters from America’s Wars reveals our nation’s struggles and triumphs in soldiers’ letters from the Revolution to the operations in Afghanistan.
The 50 Greatest Letters from America’s Wars is more than just a collection of letters recounting the experiences of servicemen and -women. While they are simply written, they speak with power and eloquence about the human face of history.
From members of the Continental Army to today’s Special Forces, the authors of these letters are frontline soldiers, nurses, prisoners of war, spies, and generals—a cross section of the men and women who fought, and sometimes sacrificed their lives, in this nation’s wars. It also tells the stories—in the first person—of their families, friends, and sweethearts.
Inspiring and intriguing, this book is filled with the voices of ordinary heroes, voices that speak of courage, love of country and family, and sacrifice in the name of freedom. Now more than ever, these letters show us what matters most.
