Publisher's Summary

This is a unique collection creatively captures the work of Edward R. Murrow and "Murrow's Boys". The role Murrow plays in this evolution reveals a man of tremendous commitment to his craft, despite almost no previous experience in radio, with a great capacity for judging and selecting the others who became the critical reporters on his team.
The travails of Murrow and the others as they faced death in flights over enemy territory, beach assaults and other combat assignments and suffered the tyranny of technological challenges with equipment strained to the breaking point make for great listening. This collection will be a superb addition to the library of any student of WWII and is also recommended for anyon who enjoys history in the making.
