FELDPOST LETTERS Volume 2 continues the tragic story of the German people, who were caught up in a war not of their own choosing. The majority of the population in 1939 was strongly opposed to war, especially those who remembered the suffering they endured in World War I. When war did come, they prayed that it would be a short one, and that their lives could quickly return to normal. It was not meant to be. This volume offers personal correspondence during the twilight years of the Third Reich: 1943-1945. The hope in these letters is now merely to survive the insane world in which innocent people lived and died. None of the fanatics are represented here. Only the truly innocent, and they are not afraid to pour their hearts out. Experience first-hand the hopes and dreams, fears and suffering, of ordinary people caught up in events far beyond their control. "If only this lousy war would end. The devil is loose. The world has gone mad."
