Abstract/Description: "During World War II newspapermen found many of their assignments centered on the 'fighting fronts' of the various campaigns. Among this group was Ernie Pyle, who became especially well-known, closely followed, and warmly admired for his accounts of army life. Through his graphic reporting Pyle endeared himself to civilians at home whose relatives and friends were at these outposts, and to military personnel abroad who felt that Pyle was telling their story and was writing for them, as they could not, their letters home. One of these soldiers, this writer, became interested in the writings of Pyle, while serving in the Asiatic-Pacific Theater during World War II. In fact, the writer was a member of the 77th Infantry Division, which Ernie Pyle was visiting when he was killed. Because of this interest the writer, in his search for a topic for a Master's paper that would foster bibliographic competency, thought worthwhile a consideration of the life and works of Ernie Pyle. Such a study was believed to be of possible value to librarians and students as well as a practical exercise in bibliography and library research for a prospective librarian"--Introduction.
