Flyer

Come explore New Mexico history through film! This is a free event! Pulitzer Prize winning war correspondent Ernie Pyle lived in New Mexico from 1940 until his death in 1945.  In 1948, the house he and his wife shared became Albuquerque’s first branch library. Learn why Pyle was America’s most beloved journalist with this PBS special. No one wrote more movingly and realistically about the common man in war than he did, telling the story of World War II from the perspective of the G.I. in the foxhole and on the front line from the bombing in London (1939) to the end of the war in the Pacific (1945). The film includes commentary by Former President Gerald Ford, Walter Cronkite, and Charles Kuralt. Oscar winner Tom Hanks wrote "G.I. Joe: The Ernie Pyle Story is the best documentary film ever done about the true heroes of World War II, the common soldier.”
