Description
Walter Cronkite called him "one of our best war correspondents," and his stories from Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Pacific during World War II earned him the Pulitzer Prize. George Weller is given a long overdue tribute in this collection of his fearless, intrepid dispatches from 1941–45, as well as excerpts from three books, which show Weller unencumbered by the censorship that dogged his wartime reporting.

"A humbling reminder of what an important contribution to our understanding of the world a really good 'traditional' reporter can offer.... The great power of Weller's reporting lies in his ability to convey a vivid sense of how the war felt on the ground (or on the sea and in the air) to those fighting it—and to those civilians caught up in its whirlwind. His eye for detail, his ability to let those he encounters tell their stories and his descriptive power bring all too alive the scary, messy, relentless, bloody business of warfare. His courage and sheer resilience were remarkable.... We must hope there will always be people such as George Weller with the skills and the spirit to tell the world the often tortured stories of itself."—Financial Times
