From 50,000 replies sent in response to a request from the Legacy Project for letters from American servicemen at war, 85 were chosen for this audiobook, including letters from Clara Barton and General MacArthur. Since all of them are written in first person, the diversity of voices (there are 16 readers) makes us appreciate the variety of opinions on the conditions of military life and helps us better imagine who is writing. Some of these almost sacred messages are the last words of the senders, respectfully reminding us once again of the high price of freedom.
