"A full-length, deeply human portrait of the American soldier in action" - Edward Streeter, The New York Times.
"There are really two wars and they haven't much to do with each other. There is a war of maps and logistics, of campaigns, of ballistics, armies, divisions and regiments - and that is General Marshall's war. Then there is the war of homesick, weary, funny, violent, common men who wash their socks in their helmets, complain about the food...and lug themselves and their spirit through as dirty a business as the world has ever seen and do it with humor and dignity and courage - and that is Ernie Pyle's war. He knows it as well as any one and writes it better than any one." - John Steinbeck
