The soldier's truth : Ernie Pyle and the story of World War II / David Chrisinger.
"The Soldier's Truth brings to life Ernie Pyle's years as a combat journalist in World War II. With a background in helping veterans and other survivors of trauma come to terms with their experiences through storytelling, the author brings empathy and insight to bear on Pyle's experiences. A tribute to an ordinary American hero whose impact on the war is still little understood, as well as a reckoning with that war's impact and how it is remembered, this book contributes to our understanding of war and how we make sense of it"-- Provided by publisher.
