UNITED KINGDOM -- A new website reveals the last wishes of thousands of British soldiers in World War I.

British troops wrote final letters to loved ones before going to the front lines. Many of the letters were never delivered because they revealed sensitive military plans.

A company scanned 230,000 of those letters and put them online. Hundreds of thousands of those letters were being stored in a government warehouse.

Anyone can order a digital copy of a will for $10.
