Product Details
Edited by Michael E. Stevens

This volume tells the stories of sixty-two men and women from Wisconsin who served in the Spanish-American War, World War I, and World War II. Letters from the Front is a vivid social history of wartime as told by those who took part in these foreign conflicts. Most of them are "ordinary" people, uprooted from farms, factories, and offices, who took part in extraordinary events.

This work explores how war changed their lives and reveals the emotions they felt in uniform, in remote outposts, in combat, and in prison camps. Drawn from letters, diaries, oral histories, newspapers, and contemporary accounts, these volumes have an immediacy not always found in conventional histories.

Michael E. Stevens is the former State Historic Preservation Officer at the Wisconsin Historical Society. He is editor of the series "Voices of Wisconsin's Past," which also includes Women Remember the War and Remembering the Holocaust
