Here is your war : story of G.I. Joe by Ernie Pyle ( Book )
2 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 270 libraries worldwide
A wonderful and enduring tribute to American troops in the Second World War, [this] is [a] story of the soldiers' first campaign against the enemy in North Africa. With unequaled humanity and insight, [the author] tells how people from a cross-section of America--ranches, inner cities, small mountain farms, and college towns--learned to fight a war. The Allied campaign and ultimate victory in North Africa was built on blood, brave deeds, sacrifice and needless loss, exotic vistas, endurance, homesickness, and an unmistakable American sense of humor. It's all here--the suspenseful landing at Oran; the risks taken daily by fighter and bomber pilots; grim, unrelenting combat in the desert and mountains of Tunisia; a ferocious tank battle that ended in defeat for the inexperienced Americans; and the final victory at Tunis. [The author's] observations relate the full story of ordinary G.I.s caught up in extraordinary times. -Back cover.
