A seventeen-year-old who enlisted in the army in 1941 writes to describe the Bataan Death March. Other members of the greatest generation describe their war -- in such historic episodes as Guadalcanal, the D-Day invasion, the Battle of the Bulge, and Midway -- as well as their life on the home front. In this beautiful American family album of stories, reflections, memorabilia, and photographs, history comes alive and is preserved, in people's own words and through photographs and time lines that commemorate important dates and events. Starting with the Depression and Pearl Harbor, on through the war in Europe and the Pacific, this unusual book preserves a people's rich historical heritage and the legacy of the heroism of a nation.… (mer)

Tom Brokaw is certainly a respected news anchor and reporter, but younger readers, and older ones as well, owe him a great debt for collecting and saving these very personal stories from "the greatest generation". Often the most difficult part of aging is losing those people with whom you can share your memories. Frequently participants in great events are reluctant to speak about their experiences, feeling they will be too graphic, or worse, uninteresting to others. When the last survivor has passed on, there are only the textbooks, written by the victors and edited through the eyes of those who did not know these times. They will have their own agendas, and too often they are limited in space by publishers to a sentence or two, if the event is not eventually discarded altogether. Tom Brokaw has provided humankind with a great service and legacy of his own by preserving the stories of eye witnesses. No matter how prejudiced their viewpoint or imperfect their memories, these communications are from those who were there, and they give us their eyewitness view as history was being made. If some of the stories are somewhat repetitive or long-winded, this can be forgiven, since it is better to have too much of a story than not enough. Pick and choose your stories or read the book cover to cover, but leave it to the reader to be the editor, as any great reporter knows. ( )

Tom Brokaw, one of the best and most prestigious journalists in America, argues that the dying World War II vets are the 'greatest generation.' ( )

Further letters, reflections and photographs from the survivors of World War II and their families. All are interesting and moving, some especially poignant, particularly letters written by soldiers to loved ones just prior to their deaths. Anybody seeking to gain a further understanding for the times that defined this generation should read Brokaw's books. ( )
