Salt Lake City, UT – Andrew Carroll traveled throughout the US and 35 countries to collect the personal correspondence of troops and civilians in times of war. The result was 200 letters that portray the realities of conflict and sacrifice from the American Revolution to Iraq. He's collected them into the new book "Behind the Lines," and joins Doug Fabrizio to talk about his search and about what he found. (Rebroadcast)
