The Lost Generation : World War I Poetry: Bradley Letter #11, p. 2

letter to Ed Bradley

Transcribed letter to Mr. Ed Bradley, #11, Dec. 22,1918. From the World War I Collection (AR0819).

December 22, 1918


This letter was written to Mr. Ed Bradley on Dec 22, 1918, by Sgt. B.F. Loveless.

This letter describes, rather frankly and graphically, the fighting that Sgt. Loveless experienced during World War I. Much of the grusome fighting that he shares involves the innovative weaponry of the time such as machine guns, artillery shells, land mines, and poison gases.
