    Letters from the heart; letters clearly self-censored before they faced the pen of the official censor. Letters to loved ones; letters expressing sympathy to the families of fallen friends. Men baring their hearts, and men doing their best to make light of pain, fear, and injuries, even those that were in the process of killing them. Very, very moving.

    I enjoyed reading this book, but would have liked a little bit more information about the guys writing the letters as some extra context.
