Read full description of the books:
Distinguished journalist and former White House correspondent Tom Brokaw celebrates the lives and achievements of what he calls "the Greatest Generation"—the generation of Americans who fought in World War II and who led the nation, and the world, by their example in the postwar years—in this collection of two bestselling books.
The Greatest Generation tells the story of America's citizen heroes and heroines, who came of age during the Great Depression and World War II, and who went on to build modern America. They were a generation united not only by a common purpose, but by common values—duty, honor, courage, service, love of family and country, and, above all, responsibililty for oneself. The Greatest Generation Speaks continues the story of the first book, drawing on letters, interviews, and memoirs of members of the Greatest Generation that offer, in Brokaw's own words, "firsthand accounts of battles and poignant reflections on loneliness, exuberant expressions of love and somber accounts of loss."
