An Album of Memories: Personal Histories from the Greatest Generation
Publisher: Random House TradeFormat: Paperback
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 album of stories, reflections, memorabilia and photographs, history comes alive and is preserved, in people's own words and through photographs and timelines that commemorate important dates and events. Starting with the Depression and Pearl Harbour, 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. “The stories Brokaw tells are so powerful that a spell is cast upon the reader, reminding us that with enough collective energy and spirit anything can be accomplished”
