really liked it
bookshelves: 2009, biography-history, survivors, wwii-era
Read in March, 2009

I listened to this and the 2 sequels to it on audio as I've packed and unpacked during my move... Tom Brokaw does an excellent job of putting into words what the WWII experience was really like for those who lived through it, and gave me a renewed respect for those who I agree are the "greatest generation." It also makes me feel even more admiration and love for my own father, whose story could have and should have been one of those in the book!
My only problem I had was that I wish the audiobooks hadn't been abridged-- I wanted the whole thing!

Mary I also loved this book. Read it several years ago - still have the book if you want to borrow it. It was a difficult time, but people seemed to deal with it well. I was a young childd at the time, so don't remember too much about what went on, except that my step brother (whom I did not know) was killed in the war.
