The instant classic that changed the way we saw World War
II and an entire generation of Americans, from the beloved journalist
whose own iconic career has lasted more than fifty years.



In this magnificent testament to a nation and her people, Tom
Brokaw brings to life the extraordinary stories of a generation that
gave new meaning to courage, sacrifice, and honor.
From
military heroes to community leaders to ordinary citizens, he profiles
men and women who served their country with valor, then came home and
transformed it: Senator Daniel Inouye, decorated at the front, fighting
prejudice at home; Martha Settle Putney, one of the first black women to
serve in the newly formed WACs; Charles Van Gorder, a doctor who set up
a MASH-like medical facility in the middle of battle, then opened a
small clinic in his hometown; Navy pilot and future president George H.
W. Bush, assigned to read the mail of the enlisted men under him, who
says that in doing so he “learned about life”; and many
other laudable Americans.
To this generation that gave so
much and asked so little, Brokaw offers eloquent tribute in true stories
of everyday heroes in extraordinary times.
