Letters in Wartime is a "heart wrenching standout" (SEE MAGAZINE) that brings you right into the eye of World War II, the struggles, the hope and the loss of innocence. From thousand bomber raids to sacrifices made on the home-front, Letters in Wartime is a brilliant exploration of the ramifications of war.
