Overview

Explore the life and career of America's most beloved war correspondent in this release that combines the words and images of reporter Ernie Pyle with dramatic recreations and interviews to tell the unforgettable tale of the man who brought the front lines home for a nation of news-hungry citizens. Pyle's vivid columns held the entire country riveted, and interviews with former president Gerald R. Ford, as well as such media figures as Andy Rooney and Walter Cronkite, show that the risks Pyle took on the battlefield were not in vain. Few reporters could convey the chaos of war on the written page, and from his coverage of the London bombing in 1940 to his story proclaiming the end of the war in the Pacific in 1945, Ernie Pyle lived to pen some of the most remarkable wartime tales ever published.
