Letters Home represents Sylvia Plath's correspondence from her time at Smith College in the early 1950s, through her meeting with, and subsequent marriage to, the poet Ted Hughes, up to her death in February 1963. The letters are addressed mainly to her mother, with whom she had an extremely close and confiding relationship, but there are also some to her brother Warren and her benefactress Mrs Prouty. Plath's energy, enthusiasm and her passionate tackling of life burst onto these pages, providing us with a vivid and intimate portrait of a woman who has come to be regarded as one of the greatest of twentieth-century poets. In addition to her capacity for domestic and writerly happiness, however, these letters also hint at Plath's potential for deep despair, which reached its crisis when she holed up in a London flat for the terrible winter of 1963.

"Samuel A. Burney, born in April 1840, was the son of Thomas Jefferson Burney and Julia Shields Burney. He graduated from Mercer University (then at Penfield, Georgia) in 1860. He joined the Panola Guards, an infantry component of Thomas R. R. Cobb's Georgia Legion, in July 1861. For the next four years he served in the Army of Northern Virginia both in Virginia and in Tennessee. Burney was wounded at Chancellorsville in May 1863, and as a result of his wound he was placed on disability in March 1864 and served the remainder of the war on commissary duty in southwest Georgia." "These letters of a college graduate written to his wife - Sarah Elizabeth Shepherd - are lyrical and beautifully written. Burney describes battles, camp life, theology, and the day-to-day dreariness of life in the army. This is an astounding collection of letters for anyone interested in the Civil War or the South."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

This book is the story of just one newly graduated nurse told in her own words in her letters home saved by her parents and friends. All these collected letters, repressed memories, and commentary, spell out the details and background for Letters Home. It is one of the few stories of nurses in the Pacific area. In the century’s greatest war, one nurse, one boxful of letters, photos, drawings and documents – and a broken leg at the age of 78, came together here in a warm, honest, sometimes graphic description about a time in history that is slipping from our collective memory. Battles are forever documented, troops heroism is scribed and caught on news clips and film, but the role of nurses has not until recently been well recorded. Nurses too are part of “The Greatest Generation” facing unknown places, unknown dangers, extreme physical discomfort and physical exhaustion. They served alongside America’s finest troops, cared for them when they were sick and injured. They mourned for those who could not make it home. Finally recognized by the opening of the Women’s Memorial in Washington DC, October 1997, are women who served and are serving in the uniform of the United States. They are being honored and remembered for their service in the many branches of the Armed Forces. This book gives a glimpse into the Southwest Pacific area in WWII through the eyes of one nurse who saw and recorded how it was.

“We just filed out and walked in through a door that had a big sign over it which read: "Through these doors pass the future of the United States Army." It gave me goosebumps. Once inside, we lined up in a big room. Thirty or so of us were on the bus. We were told to go single file into the "Amnesty Room" and dump everything we shouldn’t have. It was a long list. It’s almost like we were going to prison.”- from “Letters Home”

John Edwin Gardiner was the eldest son of James "Jimmy" Gardiner, the most prominent Liberal politician of his day in western Canada. Edwin was called up by the RCAF in November 1940, received his wings in October 1941, and travelled to England in early November 1941. On August 18, 1942, on the eve of the Dieppe Raid, Edwin wrote to his father: "At long last we're going to take part in something big which you will read all about in the papers long before you get this letter." Edwin Gardiner was killed when his plane went down on the following day. James Gardiner, who had lost two brothers in the First World War, had now lost his son to war. His wife, Violet, found the grief unbearable and took her own life in October 1944, yet another casualty of war.

Letters Home is a unique account of daily life for a military family living in Occupied Germany as they experienced the aftermath of World War II and the dawning of the Cold War. Through extensive letters written home to family left behind in America and supplemented by interviews with the family, the reader will discover insights not seen elsewhere. Few books about the postwar period mention American families living in Germany, yet thousands were relocated and there was an extensive system of high schools-including sports teams, dances, and other everyday aspects of American life. The historically significant letters are part travelogue, part eyewitness account to the War Crimes Trials, part brand new material on the plight of the DPs-the refugees unwelcome in Germany and unable to go back to their homelands for fear of what the Russians would do to them. A marvelous piece of Americana with a touch of Innocents Abroad, Letters Home adds a human angle to the turbulent years of 1946-1949-a human aspect to events not available in any other source on the occupation.
