The Greatest Generation Speaks: Letters and Reflections by Tom Brokaw
In this superb book, Tom Brokaw goes out into America, to tell through
the stories of individual men and women the story of a generation,
America's citizen heroes and heroines who came of age during the Great
Depression and the Second World War and went on to build modern America.
This generation was united not only by a common purpose, but also by
common values--duty, honor, economy, courage, service, love of family
and country, and, above all, responsibility for oneself. In this book,
you will meet people whose everyday lives reveal how a generation
persevered through war, and were trained by it, and then went on to
create interesting and useful lives and the America we have today.
