Information
Love Letters of the Great War brings together some of the most romantic correspondence ever written: passionate love letters sent from British, American, French, German, Australian and Canadian troops in the height of battle, and the heart-breaking replies of their girlfriends, wives and sweethearts. From eloquent declarations of love and longing to wrenching accounts of fear, jealousy and betrayal, each set of letters reveals a story. Some soldiers wrote simple thank you messages for provisions sent, others penned heartfelt goodbyes, many shared sweet dreams of home. But in all the correspondence, there lies a truly human portrait of love and war. These letters, many of which have never before been published, are introduced by a brief piece about the correspondents. Some of the characters in these pages were parted for ever by the tragedy of war; others reunited. Together, a century on from the start of the First World War, these letters offer an intimate glimpse into the hearts of men and women separated by conflict, and show how love can transcend even the bleakest and most devastating of realities.
