Edwin's Letters by Edwin Gordon Thomas

Book Description

This is a moving and timeless chronicle of a young man's war that will strike a sorrowful chord with many readers. Here, quite unadorned, are the official letters of call-up, Edwin's own letters home to his mother over two-and-a-half years (meticulously preserved by her until her dying day), the telegrams warning of his 'going missing', the official and personal letters of condolence that only served to twist a knife in the family's wounds.
