Ernie Pyle was perhaps the most famous of the imbedded correspondents covering US troop movements during WWII. He lost his life in 1945 in the Pacific. This is an excellent primary source, complete with a listing of the men he talked to and about in the back. Someone's grandfather might very well be listed in this book which pays wonderful tribute to The Greatest Generation.
