about

Includes over 150 images recording the career of Ernie Pyle from childhood to Ie Shima.

Out of the foxholes he shared with them, and from his own heart straight to the folks back home, comes Ernie Pyle’s story of our soldiers’ first big campaign abroad. He takes you to live with them on the great adventure of their lives, and tells you the thousands of little things you want to know about how they are living this war from day to day. To Ernie Pyle they are the same boys we have always known, from the Main Streets, Broadways and farms throughout America. They are the boys who had to learn much of the art of war as they went along, who often paid a bitter price for their knowledge. They emerge by the hundreds from these pages as the living, gallant, unpretentiously heroic Americans who are writing one of the great chapters of our history.

For six months Ernie Pyle...wrote news columns about the war in Tunisia which were increasingly recognized as one of the greatest pieces of reporting in American journalism. Toward the end of the campaign they were running on the front pages of countless newspapers. Americans discovered in them a new feeling about the war, a human warmth, an unstereotyped approach—in other words, exactly what they were most interested in—not grand strategy but how the boys were making out. These columns, in full-length form in which they were individually filed, form the basis for a wonderfully moving story of our soldiers throughout the entire campaign, from embarkation from England through ultimate victory. HERE IS YOUR WAR is great reporting indeed, but more than that it is a book of timeless and permanent excellence.

“A full-length, deeply human portrait of the American soldier in action...the things that those at home want most to know.”
