With hair-raising accounts of bomb raids and glittery tales of elbow-rubbing with the likes of Clark Gable, Andy Rooney, and Ernest Hemingway, Cronkite's War captures what foreword writer Tom Brokaw calls a quintessential American story. The book recounts Walter Cronkite's experience as a United Press correspondent covering the air war in Europe from 1943-45, told through letters to his young wife Besty. Selected by his grandson, Walter Cronkite IV, and historian Maurice Isserman, this captivating correspondence chronicles the excitement and complexity of one of the world's great historical events, seen through the eyes of the reporter who would go on to become the most trusted man in America as anchorman of the CBS Evening News.
