Summary
Walter Cronkite, a giant in American journalism in the vanguard of "The Greatest Generation," reveals his World War II experiences in this fascinating book. Cronkite married Betsy Maxwell on March 30, 1940, following a four-year courtship. She proved to be the love of his life, and their marriage lasted happily until her death in 2005. But before they celebrated their second anniversary, he became a credentialed war correspondent, preparing to leave her behind to go overseas. The couple spent months apart in the summer and fall of 1942, and after a brief December leave, Cronkite left again on assignment for England. Cronkite would console himself during their absence by writing her long, detailed letters describing his experiences, his observations in wartime Europe, and his longing for her. Betsy Cronkite carefully saved the letters, copying many to circulate among family and friends. More than a hundred of Cronkite's letters from 1943-45 survive. They chronicle both a great love story and a great war story, as told by the reporter who would go on to become an anchorman for the CBS Evening News with a reputation as "the most trusted man in America."
