FROM THE FRONTLINE Family Letters And Diaries

FROM THE FRONTLINE
Family Letters And Diaries 
From the Frontline is the extraordinary story of eight members of the same family who served in the military across the last century. Two were killed, Three became Generals and all were wounded/and/or decorated. They saw service in Africa, Korea, Aden, the Falklands and Afghanistan - as well as both World Wars. This is a moving story of the ties that bind.
From the Frontline is an extraordinary record of a family's military service over the last 100 years. Thanks to careful editing, each individual tells his story through letters and diaries which capture the military scene and reflect family ties that bind them all closely. The eight family members served in South Africa, West Africa, Korea, Aden, the Falklands and Afghanistan as well as both World Wars. Two lost their lives and others were wounded. Three became generals, many were decorated. Their accounts span a century when warfare changed greatly. Yet the tone of the letters remains surprisingly constant, reflecting confidence in their peers, pride in service to Crown and Country, love of family and understatement of the dangers. Being thinking men, their views on the conduct of operations is sometimes critical as are their opinions of their leaders. This collection is highly unusual and totally enthralling.
