Book Description: A wonderful and enduring tribute to American troops in the Second World War, Here Is Your War is Ernie Pyleâ€™s story of the soldiersâ€™ first campaign against the enemy in North Africa. With unequaled humanity and insight, Pyle tells how peopleÂ from a cross-section of Americaâ€”ranches, inner cities, small mountain farms, and college townsâ€”learned to fight a war. The Allied campaign and ultimate victory in North Africa was built on blood, brave deeds, sacrifice and needless loss, exotic vistas, endurance, homesickness, and an unmistakable American sense of humor. Itâ€™s all hereâ€”the suspenseful landing at Oran; the risks taken daily by fighter and bomber pilots; grim, unrelenting combat in the desert and mountains of Tunisia; a ferocious tank battle that ended in defeat for the inexperienced Americans; and the final victory at Tunis. Pyleâ€™s keen observations relate the full story of ordinary G.I.s caught up in extraordinary times.
