Behind the Lines: Revealing and Uncensored Letters from Our War-Torn World

by Andrew Carroll
£7.99   paperback  Ebury Press (2006)

Behind the Lines: Revealing and Uncensored Letters from Our War-Torn World by Andrew Carroll For three exhausting years Andrew Carroll travelled the world, zealously collecting unpublished letters and emails from soldiers and civilians from over 35 different countries. The letters covered a staggering range of events, from World Wars I and II, through to the war in former Yugoslavia and the Gulf War.
The result is Behind the Lines, the first book of its kind - a dramatic, candid and intimat look at warfare as revealed in previously unseen letters.
Andrew Carroll has brought together the most impassioned wartime correspondences ever written, beginning with the Seven Years War and the American Revolution, and continuing through to the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq. The result is a riveting account of war, from the first shots of battle to heartfely post-war letters of reconciliation between former enemies. These letters illuminate with unflinching honesty and authenticity the feelings of those who have been most affected by combat - the service-members and civilians who have experienced it first-hand.

"A remarkable social history, vividly bringing home the pathos, sacrifice and horror of war."
(Glasgow Evening Times)
