In this beautiful American family album of stories from the Greatest Generation, the history of life as it was lived during the Depression and World War II comes alive and is preserved in people's own words. Photos and time lines also commemorate important dates and events. An Army Air Corps veteran who enlisted in 1941 at age 17 writes to describe the Bataan Death March. A black nurse tells of her encounter with wartime segregation. 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 lives on the home front. Starting with the Depression and Pearl Harbor, moving on through the war years in Europe, in the Pacific, and at home, this unique book preserves a people's rich historical heritage and the legacy of a nation's heroism in war and its courage in peace-in the shaping of their lives and of the world we have today.
