"More than eight million young men perished during the First World War - a staggering figure. The natural reaction to such a great loss of humanity was to forget the individuals and recast the conflict into one of faceless armies and battles commemorated in stone and metal monuments. War Letters of Fallen Englishmen was published following the war in order to remind the living of those who were lost in the name of the British crown - brothers, husbands, fathers, sons. Like its companion volume, German Students' War Letters, this collection provides, in the very words of those who died in combat, the closest approximation possible to the experience of war. The letters reproduced here are poignant, powerful, and graphic and were chosen for their depth of perception, the intensity of their descriptions, and their messages to future generations. This edition contains a new foreword by the distinguished World War I Historian Jay Winter."--Jacket
