I read this book many years ago. A co-worker lent it to me, even though I really didn't want to read it at the time. I am so glad I did read it. This book includes some wonderful stories. Heartwarming, tear-jerking, happy, sad - it's all here. A very good read.

It was a very good sequel to "The Greatest Generation" ... full of letters and more stories which Brokaw received after the publication of his first book. It could continue on and on with so many stories. I don't think I would ever tire of hearing. This generation has been quiet for so long about their experiences going through the depression and WWII. It's good to finally hear the stories and attempt to understand what happened and what these wonderful people went through during that difficult time.

I thought it would have more letters. That portion of the book was fascinating and moving to me. I still would recommend it to anyone who would like firsthand accounts of being away from loved ones... from the soldier and from the families' points of view.
