He won the Pulitzer Prize in 1944 for his spare, poignant accounts of "dogface" infantry soldiers from a first-person perspective.

"He deserves the gratitude of all his countrymen."The book has been autographed on the title page by Ernie Pyle with a fountain pen in black............BOTH BOOK AND AUTOGRAPH ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION.
