With World War II began, Pyle became a war correspondent, applying his intimate style to the war. Pyle generally wrote from the perspective of the common soldier, an approach that won him not only further popularity but also the Pulitzer Prize in 1944. On April 18, 1945, while riding a jeep toward a forward command post on the island of le Shima to cover the front-line combat, Ernie Pyle was hit by a Japanese machine-gun bullet in his left temple and died instantly. In 1947, his last home in Albuquerque, New Mexico was made into the first branch library of the Albuquerque Library System, named in honor of its famous occupant. Today, the Ernie Pyle Library houses a small collection of adult and children's books, as well as Pyle memorabilia and archives. Contens in Seven Chapters: To the Pacific War, Marianas Occupied, the B-29s, Life on a Flat-Top, Love-Day-Okinawa, Men From Mars, and L'envoi. Center section with 16 pages of black and white photographs.
