Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Andrew Carroll spent three years traveling throughout the United States and around the world to seek out the most powerful and unforgettable letters ever written during American wars. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;iandgt;Behind the Linesandlt;/iandgt; is the result of that extraordinary trip and represents the first book of its kind: a dramatic, intimate, and revealing look at warfare as seen through the personal correspondence of US and foreign troops and civilians who have experienced major conflicts firsthand. From handwritten missives penned during the American Revolution to e-mails from Afghanistan and Iraq, andlt;iandgt;Behind the Linesandlt;/iandgt; captures the full spectrum of emotions — exhilaration, fear, devotion, despair, courage, heartache, patriotism, rage, and even humor — expressed in times of war.

Synopsis:

Following the phenomenal success of his third "New York Times" bestseller, "War Letters," Carroll presents a collection of 200 previously unpublished letters from soldiers fighting on all sides, in every war in America's history, beginning with the American Revolution.
