A powerful collection of letters on the theme of war, curated by the founder of the globally popular Letters of Note website.

The first volume in the best-selling Letters of Note series was a collection of hundreds of the world’s most entertaining, inspiring, and unusual letters, based on the seismically popular website of the same name – an online museum of correspondence visited by over 70 million people. Now, the curator of Letters of Note, Shaun Usher, gives us wonderful new volumes featuring letters organized around a universal theme. 

In this volume, Shaun Usher turns to the theme of war. There are few constants in life that weigh more heavily on the human race than our ceaseless engagement in acts of war. From time immemorial to the present day, across the world, wars have marked our history on earth like little else. Letters of Note: War brings together some of the most remarkable letters that encapsulate human experience of war, from unimaginable feats of courage and compassion, to unthinkable episodes of violence and horror. Includes letters by Kurt Vonnegut, Alexander Hamilton, Martha Gellhorn, and many more. 

Featuring letters read by Sanjeev Bhaskar, Louise Brealey, Simon Callow, Benedict Cumberbatch, Adrian Edmondson, Stephen Fry, Neil Gaiman, Danny Huston, Toby Jones, Ferdinand Kingsley, Jude Law, Natascha McElhone, Clarke Peters, Juliet Stevenson and Mark Strong. With bonus performances by Ben Kingsley, Colin Firth, and Taron Egerton.
