Andrew Carroll, founder of The Legacy Project, has spent the last several years promoting the preservation of letters of all kinds – from historically significant correspondence, to the shoebox of old letters you keep under your bed. He put out a call asking for copies of letters written in wartime, and the result is his latest book. Carroll talks about his project and presents some of the most outstanding examples from the 200 letters collected in the book.
