The author re-introduces this series of memorable dispatches which he sent in 1943 from England, Africa and Italy, bringing a vivid picture of the war to American readers. Down to earth descriptions of war-time Britain; what it feels like to be a private soldier landing on the beaches; sitting in pubs during bombing raids are amongst the experiences of Steinbeck.
