Reviews

"This is the portrait of a complex, enormously gifted but tortured writer . . . but it is much more: few books about combat journalism have so vividly depicted the fascinating interactions between war correspondents, soldiers and folks back home. . . . World War II was quintessentially Ernie Pyle's war, and Mr. Tobin brilliantly explains why." -- The New York Times Book Review
"James Tobin's magnificent new biography of Pyle should do much to renew the luster of his name and revive interest in his extraordinary work. . . . This clear-eyed, unsentimental, beautifully written biography is a classic worthy of the man it celebrates." -- The Cleveland Plain Dealer
"What makes this biography so fascinating . . . is the story of Pyle himself, a man seemingly driven by demons and nagged by self-doubt who accomplished so much. . . . Anyone with an interest in the power of the written word will be intrigued -- and will lament that Pyle was the sort of character unlikely to be seen again." -- The Philadelphia Inquirer
"Barely a half century ago Ernie Pyle was one of the most famous people in America . . . both the chronicler of the common man and its embodiment. Now, five decades after his death from Japanese fire on a small island in the Pacific, Pyle has had the good fortune to fall under the scrutiny of a sympathetic, unsentimental and scrupulous biographer. . . . The result is a thorough, revealing book." -- The Washington Post Book World
