Book Description:
Film producer David Brown describes the author this way: 'When I met Richard Bruner . . . during World War II, I was instantly impressed by his journalistic savvy and extraordinary background in war and peace. He covered the war for the Armed Forces newspaper, Stars and Stripes, with distinction, grace and wit.'Dick's memoir has just about everything humor, passion, intrigue, pathos, horror, compassion and a lot of insight. In Behind the Front, Dick takes readers through his first hand experiences as a correspondent with the Army newspaper during the Nazi blitz in London and the Tunisian campaign in North Africa.In London, Dick met famed author and correspondent Quentin Reynolds and also interviewed screen gangster Edward G. Robinson. In Glasgow, he met his first lesbians.In Tunisia, Dick got what some claimed was the first interview with a German prisoner of war. He was also under direct fire along with American war correspondents including the beloved Ernie Pyle.As the 'Yank About Town' columnist and broadcaster on the Armed Forces radio station, Dick takes readers through a fascinating press conference by General George C. Marshall. He also interviewed Bob Hope, John Garfield, Humphrey Bogart, George Raft, Ann Sheridan, Frederic March and Al Jolson.
