Obviously, this man was a great reporter! I was looking for Brave Men in a French edition but it seems to be impossible to find it, what a pity !.
I was very happy to find it on Amazon.com.
I think that this book is far above all the films or novels you could read on this subject. With Ernie Pyle style, you can catch the real feelings and the fears and the heroism of this men who were caught in this Maelstrom.
Ike and his top brass, once they understood how Pyle operated and once Pyle gained their trust, let Pyle go wherever he wanted and talk to whomever he wanted. They knew Pyle would never agonize over German and Japanese civilian casualties in order to appear "objective" and "balanced." They knew Pyle would never be waiting on the beaches before the troops even landed. They knew if Pyle ever found out about a secret operation he would keep his mouth shut and not blab about it to the world. It�s doubtful today�s crop of media darlings will produce an Ernie Pyle. In the quest for ratings, advertising dollars and careers, most of today�s mainstream media � especially the beltway crowd � is incredibly selfish, whining, arrogant, ignorant and, ultimately, unpatriotic. Pyle is proof positive that a journalist can tell it like it is and still love his country at the same time.
