by Ernie Pyle
Ernie Pyle was one the greatest war correspondents during World War II, particularly from the perspective of the enlisted soldier. This book and his other "Brave Men" are outstanding. Ernie followed the troops for virtually the entire war until he was killed by a sniper near the end of the conflict. This nation lost a treasure that day.
