Publius Virgilius Rogers Professor of American History Maurice Isserman and his former student and CBS News Associate Producer Walter Cronkite IV ’11 presented their new book, Cronkite's War: His World War II Letters Home, to a full house at the National Press Club (NPC)  in Washington, D.C., on June 4. Their presentation was followed by a question and answer session and book-signing.  Proceeds from the event benefited the National Press Club Journalism Institute.

The book is a blend of personal correspondence from Cronkite to his wife, Betsy, between 1943 and 1945; selections from Cronkite's wartime dispatches; and contextual narrative weaving them together.
