Publius Virgilius Rogers Professor of American History Maurice Isserman, co-author of Cronkite's War: His World War II Letters Home, discussed the book on Think, KERA-FM’s flagship midday talk show on June 20. KERA, North Texas’ public radio station, reaches the fourth-largest population area in the country and is heard by two million listeners weekly.
Cronkite's War 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. Isserman co-authored the book with his former student, Hamilton alumnus Walter Cronkite IV ’12.
A podcast of the hour-long interview is available on the KERA site.
