Collection of Ernie Pyle's dispatches from World War II, many written while he was literally at the front lines with US infantry troops. Pyle is not a great stylist nor does he attempt to embroider his experiences into entertainment, and his matter-of-fact reporting about the business of war, mostly from Europe, are often the more heartbreaking because of it.

For all readers, especially those whose only of World War II may be from textbooks or films, Ernie's War offers a revealing, poignant look at the actual experiences of the average foot soldier swept into the tumult of battle. 9 black-and-white photographs.
