A soldier's odyssey: the life and letters of Marcus Edwards (1905-1995) is an astonishing chronicle of the life of a soldier on the frontline during the Second World War.

Written by Marcus Edwards’ nephew, Ian Edwards, the work draws largely on the soldier’s correspondence and diary notes from the Second World War in particular. The letters provide revelations about conditions of living in the major war zones of Europe and North Africa.
