Summary
  • A giant in American journalism in the vanguard of "The Greatest Generation" reveals his World War II experiences in this National Geographic book
  • Cronkite, an obscure United Press wire service reporter, married Betsy Maxwell on March 30, 1940. When he became a credentialed war correspondent, Cronkite would console himself during their separation by writing her long, detailed letters-- sometimes five in a week-- describing his experiences, his observations of life in wartime Europe, and his longing for her. More than a hundred of Cronkite's letters from 1943-45 survive, chronicling both a great love story and a great war story
Summary
The iconic American journalist shares the story of his World War II experiences as a then-obscure United Press wire service reporter, tracing his two convoys across the dangerous North Atlantic to assignments in England and North Africa
