Never before published this collection of letters are from the Daily Telegraph’s letters pages of 1914-1918. They comment on the war’s progress or lack of it, praising and blaming those in charge, writing of their loss and grief, their pride too in the sacrifices and losses on the field, at sea and in the air.
