In this superb audiobook, Tom Brokaw goes out into America to tell - through the stories of individual men and women - the story of a generation, American's citizen heroes and heroines who came of age during the Great Depression and the Second World War and went on to bud modern America.nbsp;nbsp;

"They won the war; they saved the world.nbsp;nbsp;They can home to joyous and short-lived celebrations and immediately began the task of rebuilding their lives and the world they wanted.nbsp;nbsp;They married in record numbers and gave birth to another distinctive generation, The Baby Boomers.nbsp;nbsp;A grateful nation made it possible for more of them to attend college than any society had ever educated anywhere.nbsp;nbsp;They have the world new science, literature, art, industry, and economic strength unparalleled in the long curve of history."nbsp;nbsp;

This generation was united not only by a common purpose, but also by common values - duty, honor, economy courage, service, love of family and country, and, above all, responsibility for oneself.

"I am in awe of them, these men and women who have given us the world we have today.nbsp;nbsp;I feel privileged to have been witness to their stories.nbsp;nbsp;A I came to know many of them I became more and more moved by their everyday excellence - and more and more convinced that this is the greatest generation in our country's history." - Tom Brokaw
