About the book:

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.
