Letter to the mother

My lovely mum,
How are you ?
Life is very difficult at the front. Do you remember Jack ? I told you about him the last time. He was a good friend and yesterday, he was killed... I’m very scared and I’m waiting my time. Lots of soldiers go and never come back...
I’m so tired. All night long I can’t sleep because I always hear the bombs’ sound. I hope to come back home, to see you, to take you in my arms.
Don’t worry about me, I realize that I have to protect my nation.
I love you so much, don’t (...)

Letter to the mother

My dear mother,
I hope this letter find you good and as well as you can be during these difficult times. I know it’s not easy for you, but I guess it’s difficult for everyone. Here, at the front, nothing has changed since my last letter : death is still there, everywhere, like if we had a big black cloud above our heads, a cloud about to burst. I think it will rain soon. I prefer not to think about how the trenches will be. The last time it rained, there was mud everywhere and I can still (...)

Kate’s diary

July, 9th 1940 :
Everybody tries to find a place to be safe. Now, it’s sure, tomorrow will be horrible. The Royal Air Force is ready but I know that London will be in the chaos... I’m afraid. I want to live.
July, 10th 1940 - 8.OO am
I was woken by the siren. German planes are going to arrive. We are now in the cellar. We are waiting... waiting... waiting for what ? I don’t know. The end of the alert maybe... Or the end of the war... We are starting to hear bombardments. The noise is far. (...)

DEAR MOTHER

Dear Mother,
I write you this letter because I’m scared and discouraged. The fight become harder and the conditions on the front are so hideous. Two of my friends were killed today, it’s so hard for me, we were so closed. I feel alone at the moment.
I’m so tired, I don’t have strength anymore to continue to fight. I’m so sorry to say to you that but... I feel that it’s the end for me mum, it’s regrettably the harsh reality.
They grant me no leave. There is lot of violence, I’m not strong enough (...)

LETTER FROM THE FRONT

Dear brother,
I hope you are well.
For my part I try to stay positive.
War is really terrible. Many of my friends are already dead, some of them in terrible conditions.
At the front, bombs rain down and I pray every morning to stay living a little longer ...
We have no water to wash, so we keep the mud on us all days and nights.
Even if I love animals I can’t stand rats !
I know that my letter isn’t cheery, but I didn’t want to lie to you. But please don’t tell that to our parents, just (...)
