Wartime letters have always had a special poignancy to them. Individually, they are candid snapshots of a fleeting moment in time. When gathered in a collection, though, they have all the qualities of a good diary, or even a novel. For collectors, the attraction of wartime letters is even greater when the sender, recipient, or context (e.g., a famous battle) is noteworthy.
