Ernie Pyle's War

America's Eyewitness to World War II

WINNER OF A NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD

Ernie Pyle, better than any other World War II journalist, conveyed the triumphs and tribulations of the common soldier trying to survive a brutal conflict. From North Africa and Normandy, Anzio and Okinawa -- where he died -- Pyle brought the war home to America. James Tobin's "superbly documented and compassionate account" (Publishers Weekly) is a classic biography of an American icon.
