About the book:

A wonderful and enduring tribute to American troops in the Second World War, Here Is Your War is Ernie Pyles story of the soldiers first campaign against the enemy in North Africa. With unequaled humanity and insight, Pyle tells how people from a cross-section of Americaranches, inner cities, small mountain farms, and college townslearned 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. Its all herethe 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. Pyles keen observations relate the full story of ordinary G.I.s caught up in extraordinary times.
