Overview

No one is more identified with the great events of our times than the distinguished and highly honored former CBS Evening News anchor Walter Cronkite.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Cronkite, the news anchor of the CBS Evening News for more than 20 years, recounts his journey through life while highlighting his astounding radio and television broadcasting career. Be there as he reminisces about his early days as a World War II correspondent; travel with him on bombing runs during the war; hear him interview Eisenhower about Normandy, cover the Nuremberg trials, respond to the shocking news of the Kennedy assassination, and report many other top news stories of the day. Dan Rather, Bernard Shaw, and even Cronkite's own children can be heard recounting events on this stellar auditory offering. Read magnificently by the author in a vocal tone and manner that only Cronkite can convey, this is, simply stated, listening perfection. Highly recommended.--Marty D.
