    Hello fellow iModelers,
    I just finished reading Here Is Your War, authored by, Ernie Pyle. A “good” read in Mr. Pyle’s, well famed, journalist, home-spun style of writing. In his easy going, non-condescending way, Ernie brings to the reader first hand accounts of the war in Africa, from his crossing the sea through to the end of the fighting. Many times I could “visualize” him in the fox hole during a shelling or driving the jeep in fear of aerial attacks. But also at times giving a little laugh from his accounts of soldiers still being human and having human moments during the madness of war. As I read Ernie Pyle’s accounts, I marvel at how he makes writing seem so easy to do…..”why can’t I do that”. It takes me forever just to write my address.
    Also on my shelf, but have yet to read, is Ernie’s book, Brave Men. His time with the troops in Europe.

    thanks, Bob. I like that movie too. While reading, Burgess Meredith’s portrayal was a good reference.
