In this book, Tom Brokaw goes out into America to tell, through the stories of individual men and women, the story of a generation, America's citizen heroes and heroines who came of age during the Great Depression and the Second World War and went on to build modern America.
Now, in this new edition, published at the sixtieth anniversary of D-Day and twenty years after he first visited the beaches of Normandy, Tom Brokaw updates stories from the original book in a new preface, and shares further reflections on the people he has called "the Greatest Generation" and on what they have given to the world.
