Many moons ago I worked for a military history publisher and was lucky enough to research this beaut of a book. I spent hours and hours at the brilliant @imperialwarmuseums archive in London trying not to weep over the original documents. ▪️
This book collects letters sent from serving soldiers in the front line from World War I to the modern day. All of them are honest, most of them are heartbreaking and it made me appreciate my own loved ones more, especially my brilliant dad who served in the Royal Navy his whole career. Researching the book gave me a teeny tiny insight into what it must have been like for him serving away from home, and in front line situations too.
