During World War II, Ernie Pyle's column in newspapers across the country offered a foxhole view of the struggle as he reported on the life and death of the average soldier. When he died, Pyle's popularity and readership was worldwide. The Soldier's Friend: A Life of Ernie Pyle, a biography aimed at young readers, explores the reporter's legendary career from his days growing up in the small town of Dana, Indiana, to his life as a roving correspondent with the Scripps-Howard newspaper chain, to his growing fame as a columnist detailing the rigors of combat faced by the average G.I. during World War II. The book features numerous illustrations, samples of Pyle's World War II columns, a detailed bibliography of World War II sources, and an index.--Publisher description.
