War Letters 1914–1918 tells a history of the First World War (WW1) through the words and letters of nine very different men who died in the fighting. The first five volumes are now available at Amazon. The subsequent volumes will follow at regular intervals throughout the next four years. Find out how to get the books.
Included in the series are the letters of servicemen from Britain, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United States. Together their experiences cover the war on the Western Front, Gallipoli, Mesopotamia and the war at sea and in the air.
Read consecutively, the books tell a story of the war from its beginning, when the seventeen-year-old Wilbert Spencer decided he wanted to become an officer, until 10 November 1918 when a young British pilot dies as his plane is shot down over Germany. (Read the introduction to the series.)
