Author David Chrisinger examines America’s earliest days of involvement in World War II in 1943, informed by the “in the trenches” reporting of Ernie Pyle. The legendary war correspondent was embedded with the 1st Infantry Division in North Africa—work that later earned him a Pulitzer Prize.
Chrisinger is the author of the forthcoming book about Pyle’s wartime experiences, The Unhappy Warrior: Ernie Pyle and the Story of the Second World War. He is a contributing writer for the New York Times, directs the writing program at the University of Chicago’s Harris School of Public Policy, and teaches memoir writing to military veterans and their families.
