In the spring of 1944, Ernest Hemingway traveled to Europe to cover World War II for Colliers Magazine. He had resisted this kind of journalism, but when he finally decided to go, he threw himself into the thick of events. As Terry Mort reveals, Hemingway flew missions with the RAF; went on a landing craft to Omaha Beach on D-Day; became involved with the French Resistance; and rode into the still dangerous streets of liberated Paris. Traumatically, he was also at the German Siegfried line for the horrendous killing ground of the Huertgen Forest, in which his favored 22nd Regiment lost nearly every man they sent into the fight. Investigating Hemingway's subsequent work, Mort finds strong traces of the novelist's wartime experiences in his late-career works.
