Description
WAR LETTERS OF FALLEN ENGLISHMEN
Edited by LAURENCE HOUSMAN
This book was first published following the First World War in order to remind the living of those who were lost in the name of the British crown. It provides, in the very words of individuals who participated and died in combat, the closest approximation possible to the experience of war. Carefully selected from thousands of letters, those in this collection were chosen for their depth of perception, the intensity of their descriptions and their messages to future generations.

The whole book is of such a quality as to stir the remembrance of 'the hope and promise of youth, which the wastefulness of war has carried away’. TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT
