Sue Baker's view...

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.

Synopsis

The Telegraph Book of Readers' Letters from the Great War by Gavin Fuller

An anthology of letters from writers to the Telegraph covering the lead up to and the duration of the entire first world war. The collection, which would be the best letters, ordered chronologically, would give a unique perspective on the changing perception within the country to the engagement in war, as well as offering a new voice to this area of publishing. It would be exclusively from the Telegraph archives, and include material that has not been seen or published since their original publication.
