Over the last 100 years the Imperial War Museum has been gathering together a collection of tens of thousands of letters and archives from troops serving on the front line, in conflicts from the First World War to Afghanistan. This is a selection of some of the most emotive of those letters, which include poignant expressions of love, hope and fear alongside grumbles about rations, amusing anecdotes and thoughtful reflections, but which always downplay the likelihood of imminent death.
