About the Book

Letters From Home consists of a collection of original letters. The people who wrote the letters were Americans, most of them members of an extended family. They were written during World War II, from 1943 to 1945. The letters in this book contain the thoughts, concerns, hopes, dreams, worries, and anxieties of Americans during World War II, in their own words. There are many individual stories within the letters. Those stories describe not only events and places, but people who endured and triumphed during a very difficult and historic time.
