Description

Walter Cronkite called him one of our best war correspondents. His stories from Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Paci c during World War II won him the Pulitzer Prize. Now, George Weller is immortalized in a collection of fearless, intrepid dispatches that crisscross a shattered globe. Edited by his son, Weller s War provides an eyewitness look at modern history s greatest upheaval, and also contains never-published reporting alongside excerpts from three books. From battlefront to beachhead, Weller incisively chronicles the heroism and humanity that still managed to triumph amid horri c events. Following the Nazi seizure of Eastern Europe and his own quarantine in Greece by the Gestapo, George Weller accompanies Congolese troops freeing Ethiopia for Haile Selassie. He remains in doomed Singapore until the colony falls. On Java, he watches brave American ghter pilots delay the island s collapse. Strafed by Japanese planes, he escapes by small boat to Australia. He covers the Paci c, from the Solomon Islands to the jungle hell of New Guinea. Back in Europe he sees a liberated Greece beset by civil war, then crosses the Middle East. In Burma, he risks guerrilla raids behind enemy lines. At the war s close, he hurries from China to a defeated but uncowed Japan, where new horrors await. And he struggles throughout against a tireless adversary censorship. Vivid and heart-stopping, the dispatches of World War II reporter George Weller are as intimate, memorable, and relevant today as they were nearly seventy years ago and demonstrate what it meant to be a foreign correspondent long before the era of satellite phones and the Internet.
