Reviews for Soldiers' Voice : The Story of Ernie Pyle


Horn Book Guide Reviews 1997
Published spring 1996. This admiring biography of ""the most popular war correspondent in America"" during World War II documents the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist's achievements and personal struggles. Pyle emerges as a fascinating character in O'Connor's readable account of his life. Many of the book's black-and-white archival photographs are fuzzy and poorly reproduced. Bib., ind.

School Library Journal Reviews 1996 August
Gr 5-8 Ernie Pyle, a U.S. syndicated columnist during World War II, portrayed for Americans how their soldiers lived, fought, and died. The 1944 Pulitzer Prize winner was noted for his casual, folksy way of telling stories. O'Connor has created a fine, well-written introduction to the man, complete with a selection of black-and-white photographs that elucidate the text. A worthwhile purchase. L. R.
