About Letter 192
In this expansive letter Bill expresses his scorn for those people back in the states who say "go get 'em boys! Show 'em what you're made of". "If they only knew how desperately scared we are at times like that they'd keep their big mouths shut." Bill says "that's why the average doughboy had such a great affection for Ernie Pyle. He knew how miserable war is and wasn't afraid to admit he was scared."
