    For decades, Walter Cronkite was known as "the most trusted man in America". Yet this very public figure was a remarkably private man. Drawing on unprecedented access to Cronkite's private papers as well as interviews with his family and friends, Douglas Brinkley now brings this American icon into focus as never before. Brinkley traces Cronkite's story from his roots in Missouri and Texas through the Great Depression, to World War II, when he gained notice reporting with Allied troops, and on, following his illustrious career.

    Brian says: "One of the Giants"
    "terrific bio of the 20th century's key reporter"
