Greatest Generation

This is a book I have wanted to read for some time. The subject matter was very interesting and informative and I am glad I purchased a copy. I would recommend it to others.


An appropriate title.

A very balanced history of the effects of war upon the human heart. The author brings togehter the two sides of the conflicts, home and abroad. Each contribution and interviews meld the two sides into one human effort and its impact on each other. An exellent story of our history made even more credible by the presentation. Very gripping , could not put the book down


A Nostalgic Look at the Men of the 1940s

by waucondacarol on Jun 29, 2007

I originally bought this book for my dad, a WWII Coast Guard veteran who served in the South Pacific on a freighter which carried supplies for the American troops, from New Zealand to the various South Pacific Islands. His ship blew up and sank in the New Solomons with only a few survivors shortly after he returned stateside. I had done a memory book for him a few years ago of his Coast Guard years and thought he would enjoy reading about his peers. There was one chapter about an individual who wrote about the time he spent in the New Solomons. The book is written with deep respect and pride in the achievements of those men who served during WWII. It is a wonderful tribute to those men, such as my father who gave up years of their lives to serve their country...the kind of respect unfortunately denied to those who served in other conflicts beginning in the sixties.
