|Love, Tommy: Letters Home, from the Great War to the Present Day, has been edited and compiled by noted historian Andrew Roberts, who has also written an introduction to this poignant collection of letters.

| Spring 1966, the Vietnam war wages. Across the US, farm boys from the Midwest, surfers from California and city-slickers from Cleveland opened their mail to find greetings from Uncle Sam. They became Charlie Company; the only division raised, drafted and trained for service as a unit. From draft to the battlefields of South Vietnam, this is the unvarnished truth from the fear of death to the chaos of battle, told almost entirely through the recollections of the men themselves.
The Boys of '67 is their story. You can read an extract on our blog.
An elite battalion under Louis XVI, the 9th Light Infantry regiment were with Napoleon from almost the beginning, turning the field at Marengo and breaking the Austrians. They then spent over a decade fighting their way across the continent, following Napoleon to the bitter end. Bringing their Eagle out of hiding when Napoleon returned from exile in 1815 they almost saved the day again, at Waterloo, spearheading a charge to rejoin Napoleon. But unlike at Marengo, they failed.
Incomparable tells the story of the men and officers of the legendary 9th.
Some people are excited as we are about our new books!
