Letters from the Front Lines

Letters from the Front Lines

Rear Admiral Stuart Franklin Platt
With Duffrey Sigurdson

Letters from the Front Lines is a remarkable account of the lives, and the experiences, of Americans at War in Iraq and Afghanistan. War letters have long served scholars as a rich source of material when researching the history of our Nation and this collection of letters, emails and blogs, preserves for future generations the day-to-day lives and observations of a small group of remarkable men and women in uniform.

Handwritten letters which were, until the current conflict, the only source of communication home from the frontlines, are being replaced by email and in some cases, by a web log or “blog” and this book will also serve as a reminder of how important it is that we preserve these more ephemeral records of our nation’s history, as well.
