Brokaw's homage to the Americans who overcame the Depression and World War II, The Greatest Generation, is expanded with a collection of stories, interviews, and personal histories of that generation. Enforcing his thesis that a huge debt of gratitude is owed to those tough and courageous men and women for ensuring the freedoms and comforts that are taken for granted today, Brokaw shows how they were sustained by simple ideals of patriotism, duty, family, and honor.
