More About War Letters by Andrew Carroll; Douglas Brinkley
 
 
 
Overview
This is the most comprehensive, powerful, and riveting collection of American war correspondence ever assembled. With the drama of history and the intimacy of memoir, Andrew Carroll's landmark anthology encompasses every conflict, from the Civil War to Desert Storm. Presenting 175 of the more than 50,000 letters collected to date by editor Andrew Carroll's Legacy Project, this book captures vivid depictions of famous battles, profound reflections on the nature of warfare, gripping tales of rescues and escapes, and many more unforgettable expressions of fear, love, and patriotism. War Letters, which includes never-before-published letters by such figures as Teddy Roosevelt, Colin Powell, and John F. Kennedy, will endure as a tribute to the men and women who have served the nation.

Andrew Carroll has written a new afterword especially for the Washington Square Press edition that will include extraordinary new letters that have only recently come to light. He is donating all proceeds from War Letters to veterans organizations nationwide.
