The Final YearsBook - 1999
Ernest Hemingway's triumphs as a writer during the 1940s and 1950s accompanied a life of risk and danger. Michael Reynolds discovers the truth about Hemingway's activities during the war years, including running a counterintelligence operation in Havana and riding a landing craft into Omaha Beach on D-Day. The post-war period, when he wrote the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Old Man and the Sea, was the most productive time of Hemingway's writing life but his physical and mental health deteriorated. In 1961 he committed suicide.
