Ernie Pyle in England (1941)


"There Is a Lot of Sudden Dying in London Every Night..."

Pyle, Ernie. Ernie Pyle in England. New York: Robert M. McBride, 1941.

Octavo. Hardcover. 1st Edition.

First edition of war correspondent Ernie Pyle's compelling memoir of life in Britain during the Blitz, in the original dust jacket. Known as America's favorite World War II correspondent until he was killed by a Japanese sniper, Ernie Pyle distinguished himself with his down-to-earth writing about the horrors of war and his willingness to embed himself wherever everyday people--including military men--were suffering. This chronicle of the Blitz is among the best of the period, covering life as it happened--from the air raid shelters to the fear of German invasion. Book fine, dust jacket near-fine with light rubbing mainly to extremities and two small tape repairs to verso.
